NY1’s Budd Mishkin explores sportsmanship with legendary Baltimore Orioles player Cal Ripken, Jr.
Nicknamed “The Iron Man” for his relentless work ethic and reliability on the field, Ripken was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame after earning the third highest voting percentage in Hall of Fame History. What does it take to exceed expectations on the field? What part does great leadership play in consistently outstanding performance? And what long-term impact can outstanding performance in sport have on children and communities that need it the most?
Cal Ripken, Jr will be selling and signing copies of his new book, Squeeze Play, following the event.

Cal Ripken, Jr. is baseball's all-time Iron Man. He retired from baseball in 2001 after a hall of fame career that spanned 21 seasons, all with the Baltimore Orioles. While he's best known for his incredible streak of 2,632 consecutive games played, he also redefined the shortstop position.
Over the years, Cal's name has become synonymous with strength, character, perseverance and integrity. And now, he uses that experience to build the game from the grassroots level, both on the field and off.
In 2001, Cal and his brother founded the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation in memory of their father. Since then, he has become an international ambassador for the game. All to forge the future of our game. The Right Way. The Ripken Way. His website is www.ripkenbaseball.com.
