|As a skilled leader and gracious competitor, Orioles MVP Cal Ripken, Jr. was more than the player who redefined the position of shortstop--he was an Iron Man, a genuine sportsman, and a role model among fans and fellow players alike.|
The BALTIMORE ORIOLES LEGENDS: CAL RIPKEN, JR. COLLECTOR’S EDITION is a tribute to Ripken’s on-field success, from his six-hit game and the power of his three-home run stunner, to postseason performances, All-Star Game accolades, and the night he overtook the all-time consecutive games played streak. It was this crowning achievement that lifted Cal Ripken, Jr. above the tens of thousands of men who’ve played in Major League Baseball--in all, his string of “days on the job” spanned an amazing 2,632 games played across 16 baseball seasons.
Each DVD contains the complete, digitally preserved game broadcast, intensified by SleeveStats, the perfect companion to the ultimate Baltimore Orioles DVD experience, including official stats, trivia, and game summaries right on each DVD cover. In addition, the collection features a 60-minute documentary, “Cal Ripken, Jr. The Iron Man’s Legendary Career” chronicling Ripken’s magnificent 21-year career.
