Overview

The Hardest Working Man in Baseball, Cal Ripken Jr. has garnered a reputation for indestructibility, uncanny fielding prowess, and everyman respectability. The best hitting shortstop in baseball history, as well as the man who broke the "unbreakable" Lou Gehrig consecutive-games streak, Ripken comes from a baseball family that has led the Baltimore Orioles for decades. Legendary coach Earl Weaver, Ripken's parents, and teammate Brady Anderson, among others, here talk about the contributions to baseball and basic integrity of the man many credit with bringing baseball back into favor after the devastating strike that stalled the great American game a few years earlier. Here is the story of Cal Ripken, Jr.: family man, Baltimore Oriole, Iron Man, slugger, savior.
