Cal Ripken Cardboard Appreciation #9

1998 Score Complete Players #4A

Why was Cal Ripken a Complete Player? Cal Excelled at all facets of the game. I think the only thing that he didn't do well is run. As the card says, Approach is one of the reasons he was able to play as long as he did. An astute student of the game, he knew where to stand in the field when each player came up to bat. He is at the top of most Orioles offensive and defensive categories. BTW, Cal had 36 stolen bases in his career and no more than on in a season after 1992.
