Brad's Beat: 101-Year-Old Cardinal Fan

A Joplin woman may have found the fountain of youth and it involves Cardinal baseball.
JOPLIN, MO.--- Ruth Lawrence is 101-years-old and has been a fan of the St. Louis Cardinals for 90 years. She became a fan of the team when she was 10-years-old and never misses a game. She can tell you statistics and name every player on the team. Ruth says the team is just a member of the family that has been with her most of her life. She often talks to the television during intense moments of the game. 

"Oh, I tell them what to do, but they won't listen to me. They don't' pay any attention to what I tell them. They'd win some more games," said Ruth Lawrence, 101-year-old Cardinal fan.

The Cardinals started playing in 1892 and Ruth has been following them since the 1920's. And you'd think after following the team for all those years, she'd been to a few home games. Well, she's only been to one back in the 1950's.
