Smile One of the GREATEST players ever - July 28, 2007, 11:58 AM



Tomorrow Cal Ripken Jr, will be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, in Cooperstown Oh. I was able to attend the baseball game this week, where the Orioles gave Cal a great send off. From the Cellular One suite, I was able to watch the game where he tied the record, and brought back the respect and dignity to baseball.

Congratulations Cal for being placed into the Hall of Fame, well deserved, and best wishes to one of the truest definitions of what sports in general is all about.

Don't forget who is going into the hall with him that has just as much class and dugnity, Tony Gwynn. Both had brothers that played Major League Baseball with them and are two of their biggest supporters


R.I.P. Eric. You were truly like a younger brother to me. May you live on in all those you helped and reached out to help. You are truly missed!

Yeah, and my autographed Cal Ripken rookie card and personal picture taken with him was lost in Hurricane Katrina.

Most votes ever for someone being inducted. Cal was a great player, but he's an even better person. I had the good fortune of meeting him several times as a kid - baseball camps and special events and what not.

Both are classy players that plan on hawking for Andre Dawson, Goose Gossage and Andre Rice. These players finished 3 through 5 in the ballot voting and have been passed up by the voting committee in years past.

He established a standard for professionalism that more athletes should embrace.

I covered him when he played minor leagues and covered his record setting game at Camden Yards -- damn do I feel old. But I'll never forget that 20 minute standing ovation he received as he ran around the field and shook hands with as many fans as he could.

This one fan was so anxious to shake Cal's hand -- he lost his footing and did a nose dive right out of the stands.
