When the Cardinals traveling secretary asked Sherriff for his driver's license, the 26-year-old left-hander thought someone was trying to mock his license photo, which still featured a picture from his high school days.
Sherriff spent last season at Class AAA Memphis and has an outside change at making the big league roster.
After offering Sherriff a bicycle, which the reliever appreciatively declined, Wainwright asked traveling secretary C.J. Cherre to get Sheriff a rented car.
A few hours later, while cooking Wednesday night's dinner, Sherriff received a call from Cardinals clubhouse man Ernie Moore.
Knowing that Wainwright favored Chick-fil-A, sweet iced tea and barbeque sauce, Sherriff immediately drove to the fast-food restaurant to purchase a gift card and to a supermarket to pick up some tea and sauce.
This week, after watching his own instructional internet video on how to throw a curve, Wainwright realized his grip had shifted slightly.
