On 6 September 1995, Cal Ripken, Jr, baseball's Ironman, played in his 2,131st consecutive game, breaking Lou Gehrig's record that many thought would stand forever. The story of Cal's life takes the reader from his early years in a baseball family through the minor leagues, two Most Valuable Player Awards, and his record-setting achievements as the Baltimore Oriole's superstar shortstop. Addressing the Baltimore fans after the historic game, Cal explained his approach to baseball: "Whether your name is Gehrig or Ripken, DiMaggio or Robinson, or that of some youngster who picks up his bat or puts on his glove, you are challenged by the game of baseball to do your very best day in and day out. And that's all I've ever tried to do".
