CAL RIPKEN JR.
This article was written by Jimmy Keenan and is presented in part, courtesy of the Society for American Baseball Research

On a warm September evening in 1995 at Baltimore’s Camden Yards, Oriole shortstop Cal Ripken Jr. helped restore America’s faith in baseball. The contentious nature of the previous year’s strike had left many of the sport’s dedicated fans wondering what the future held for their beloved national pastime.

Following the 1919 Black Sox scandal, the great Babe Ruth inspired disillusioned fans with his towering home runs and larger than life persona. Years later, Cal Ripken’s unparalleled work ethic and outstanding play on the diamond gave alienated fans of another generation a reason to come back to the game.

Calvin Edwin “Cal” Ripken was born on August 24, 1960, in Havre De Grace, Maryland and was raised in nearby Aberdeen. He was the second child and first son of Violet “Vi” and Calvin Edwin “Cal” Ripken Sr.
