ST. LOUIS — Now in its 10th season, Big League Impact’s annual fantasy football league gives
St. Louis Cardinals fans get a chance to take on their favorite Major League players
– all for a great cause.
Big League Impact was started in 2013 by the St. Louis Cardinals pitcher and the Big League
Impact founder Adam Wainwright’s love of fantasy football and charity. As the organization
enters the 2022 season, his vision – driven directly by the players who support him – has grown
considerably, but its mission remains the same: to fight against poverty through the platform of sport.
Led by Wainwright and teammate Tommy Edman, the weekly salary cap league powered by
the RealTime Sports fantasy platform will benefit from:
● Wainwright’s efforts to address malnutrition and food insecurity with its
agricultural programs at 5 Oaks Farm in Georgia.
● The St. Louis Public Schools Foundation, which works to engage and target
regional and national support to foster educational success at St. Louis Public School
● Cardinals Care, dedicated to improving the lives of children.
Participants will compete for a grand prize trip for two to spring training, as well as chances to win all
kinds of exciting and exclusive prizes throughout the season. Also registered in the St. Louis league
includes an invitation to a one-of-a-kind gaming experience on Friday, August 26 at Busch
Stadium, followed by a watch party in an all-inclusive suite as the Cardinals take on the
Atlanta Braves. Fans will also enjoy a pre-game Q&A with Wainwright and Edman, and get
special access to watch batting practice and play catch on the field with Cardinals players.
