Time certainly flies, especially in baseball.

Two legends played out their final season in 2022 with the St. Louis Cardinals.

The careers of Albert Pujols and Yadier Molina are officially over.

Molina’s longtime batterymate in Adam Wainwright is sticking around for one more season, but he will ultimately retire after the 2023 season.

Wainwright is the last holdover from the Cardinals World Series teams in 2006 and 2011.

On Twitter, a Cardinals fan posted side-by-side photos of both Wainwright and Molina from when they were young to now.

As one would expect, the pictures from today look quite a bit different from the original photos.

 

Waino And Yadi Through The Years

As the old saying goes, time flies when you’re having fun.

Wainwright and Molina have made so much history together.

The two Cardinals legends came through in the clutch in Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS, with Molina hitting a go-ahead home run off of New York Mets reliever Aaron Heilman in the ninth inning.

Wainwright entered the game in the bottom half of the ninth and loaded the bases with two outs for future Cardinal Carlos Beltran.

Wainwright snuck a deadly curveball by him to record the final out and send the Cardinals to the World Series.

The two were back at it again a week later, when Wainwright struck out Brandon Inge to clinch title No. 10 for the Cards.

This season, the two accomplished some important milestones, breaking the record for most wins as a battery and later setting the record for most starts as a battery.

Time flew by, but the history these two made will stay in Cardinals fans minds forever.
