Cal Ripken’s Hall Of Fame Plaque
Cal Ripken, Jr. was inducted into the National Baseball Hall Of Fame in Cooperstown as a member of the ‘Class of 2007’ as he captured 537 of 545 votes cast for election.
And the plaque says – “Arrived at the ballpark every day with a burning desire to perform at the highest level. Dedication and work ethic resulted in a record 2,632 consecutive games played from May 30, 1982 through September 19, 1988, earning him the title of baseball’s ‘Iron Man’. In 21 seasons, collected 3,184 hits and 431 home runs, and was named to 19 consecutive All-star teams. Won Rookie of the Year honors, 2 MVPs, and 2 Gold Glove Awards. His Orioles won the 1983 World Series and he hit .336 lifetime in 28 postseason games.”
Sounds like a Hall of Fame resume to me!!!
