#89 – Cal Ripken Jr.

The Life of Dad Show - Episode 89 - Cal Ripken Jr.

Tom Riles whispers and Art Eddy talks about being quiet in the morning to not wake up the rest of the family to be able to get some work down around the house. They also have Hall of Fame MLB player Cal Ripken Jr. on the show.

There are those athletes who talk the talk and then there are those athletes who use their actions to do all the talking. One of the best players to step on the diamond has to be Cal Ripken Jr., The Hall of Famer who played 21 season all with the Baltimore Orioles is a two time Gold Glove winner, a 19 time All-Star, and won the American League MVP award twice.

Oh, there is the other small thing where he passed Lou Gehrig’s 56-year-old record for consecutive games played. That is when he got the nickname of “Iron Man” for never missing a game. The first ballot Hall of Fame inductee in 2007 has even won the Home Run Derby in 1991.

Now since retiring from the game Cal is still showing his love for baseball as he is teaming up with Kellogg’s for their “Never Miss a Game” promotion. Kellogg’s and Cal are encouraging fans to love every moment this baseball season, and share the lengths they’ve gone to never miss a game. Tweet them at @Kelloggs_US, @Ricekrispies or @Cheezit using the hashtag #nevermissagame. You can win some great prizes by sharing your story.

We chat with Cal about this campaign, baseball, fatherhood, and who he now enjoys watching play in the big leagues.
