Susan DeRonne
Written with the enthusiasm of a sports announcer, this biography of Cal Ripken will appeal to baseball lovers. Filled with statistics, the book charts Ripken's life, from the summers he and his family followed his baseball-manager father across the country, to his present position with the Baltimore Orioles. Ripken grew up in a baseball family; from 1987 to 1992, Cal, his brother, and his father were all with the Orioles. During his successful career, Cal has established a consecutive playing streak second only to that of Lou Gehrig. He and his wife, Kelly, have been actively involved in many community activities. Cal is pictured as a quiet, caring superstar, sure to inspire those who follow the sport. The book contains photographs and a chronology.
