In 1995, Cal Ripken, Jr. succeeded in toppling baseball’s most unbreakable streak of 2,130 consecutive games played. He has also won the 1982 Rookie of the Year Award, two American League MVP awards, an All-Star Game MVP award, two Gold Gloves, and a World Series title.

This is the story of Junior’s ascent to superstardom. What was it like playing baseball with a father as manager and a brother as a double-play combination? How did his father’s firing and his brother’s trade affect him? What made him choose the strike over the Streak? His story captures the grit and determination it took to become one of the greatest shortstops ever to play the game of baseball.
