Today was the Hall of Fame inductions at Cooperstown of Tony Gwynn and Cal Ripken, Jr. Unlike my friend Chad and his wife Jen, I was stuck at home watching the festivities...which, I dare say reduced me to some misty eyed moments while Cal was giving his speech. I've been an O's fan for a long time and to see today's induction was just magical. Yeah, I said it, magical.
Out of all of the op-ed's written over the last week about Cal and his contribution to baseball, this one by Raymond Daniel Burke hits the nail on the head.
Thanks Cal, for all you've done for the O's, Baltimore and Baseball.
