SAN FRANCISCO (WTHR) - Actor Hugh Jackman took some good-natured ribbing from the St. Louis Cardinals dugout during Thursday night's game between the Cardinals and San Francisco Giants.

Jackman was sitting near the Cardinals bench when pitcher Carlos Martinez paid mirthful homage to the actor's X-men character, Wolverine, using tongue depressors for claws.

The actor tweeted a selfie with Martinez in the background, with the caption: Top of the 5th. @Tsunamy27 doing his best #Wolverine ?? @Cardinals at @SFGiants (I won’t leave my heart @Yankees ... it was just a one nighter)

Jackman indicates he's loyal to the Yankees and his attendance at the National League game was just a "one nighter."
