Cal Ripken, Jr., nicknamed "The Iron Man," is a former Major League Baseball shortstop and third baseman who played 21 seasons for the Baltimore Orioles. Cal was a 19-time All-Star and was twice named American League (AL) Most Valuable Player (MVP). Ripken is best remembered for breaking Lou Gehrig's record for consecutive games played, a record that had stood for 56 years. He broke the record on September 6, 1995, in his 2,131st consecutive game, which fans voted as the league's "most memorable moment" in an MLB.com poll. In 2007, Cal was elected into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility.
