“Together Since 1952:” Photo of Elderly Couple With Competing MLB Loyalties, Matching Giants-Cardinals Jerseys Goes Viral

A photo of an elderly couple wearing Giants and Cardinals jerseys while the two teams played at Busch Stadium in St. Louis has gone viral.

Carol and Warren Reckmeyer became famous when Pete Hubert snapped a photo of them Monday. His friend Benjamin Hochman, a sports columnist for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, posted it on Twitter, and the reaction was immediate. "Those that watch sports together, stay together," one person tweeted.

The couple, who have been together for 63 years, have been featured on the local news about their love for baseball, The Post Game reported.

Although Carol is a die-hard San Francisco Giants fan while her husband, Warren, has always rooted for the St. Louis Cardinals, the secret to their happy marriage, Carol says, is that Warren usually always ends his sentences with: "Yes, dear."
