Tomorrow, the two St. Louis Cardinals legends will make history and make their record 325th start together as a pitcher-catcher duo.
The two of them have been through everything together, closing out some postseason series and winning two rings in the process.
But before they make their record-breaking start, FOX Sports decided it would be a good time to take a look at the list of catchers who have caught Wainwright over the years.
Surprisingly, there are quite a few catchers not named Molina on the list.

With Molina retiring at the end of the season, that list could grow next year if Wainwright decides to come back.
But he has actually thrown to quite a few other catchers during his time in the big leagues.
The vast majority of the innings he’s thrown have obviously been to Molina, who has caught 83% of the right-hander’s innings over his 17-year career.
This just goes to show how durable Molina is and how he’s been there for almost all of Wainwright’s big moments.
He’s been catching Wainwright since 2005 when he arrived on the scene.
He was behind the plate when Wainwright closed out the 2006 NLDS, NLCS, and World Series.
He was also there when Wainwright threw a complete game against the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 2013 NLDS.
But it is interesting to see that there have been a few other catchers along the way, and there might be some more if Wainwright decides to come back for one more season.
