Cal Ripken's 2,632 Consecutive Game Played

Discussion created by travisair on Apr 9, 2013

On September 6th, 1995 my family and I went to see the Baltimore Orioles play. We grew up about two and a half hours away from Baltimore, so we didn't get to go to games often. We were excited when we purchased the tickets, but just thought of it as another game. As the game date become closer and closer, attention surrounded Cal Ripken, who would soon pass Lou Gehrig with the most consecutive games played. To our surprised, a few weeks before the game we found it it would be our game, the game we would be attending, would be the record setting day. The day was incredible, knowing we were part of history. Although I was only 13 at the time, feeling of that game lives on. Being with my family, the fireworks, and Cal Ripken breaking the record.
