Cal Ripken, Jr. Baseball’s Iron Man and Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr.

Cal Ripken is baseball's all-time "Iron Man." He retired from baseball in October 2001 after 21 seasons with the Baltimore Orioles. His name appears in the record books repeatedly, most notably as one of only eight players in history to achieve 400 home runs and 3,000 hits. In 1995, Ripken broke Lou Gehrig's record for consecutive games played (2,130), and he voluntarily ended his streak in 1998 after playing 2,632 consecutive games. Although he finished his career at third base, he is still best known for redefining the position of shortstop. In 2007, Ripken was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame with the third highest percentage of votes in history.
