Cal Ripken

Cal Ripken was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame today. When I heard the official news on the radio today, I got chills. I have a lot of great memories of Cal and consider myself lucky I lived fairly close to Baltimore so I could see him play in person a lot. All he did was play ball and the one image that will forever be etched in my memory is him catching the last out of the 1983 World Series. It was the Orioles last World Series championship and I remember this like it was yesterday.

There are a lot of great articles I came across on the internet today and I'll post some links from the Baltimore Sun. I still plan to pick up a Baltimore Sun tomorrow though. While surfing the internet for articles like this is fun, nothing beats having a paper in front of you to really soak up all the news, stats and photos.
