1993 Studio Cal Ripken

Hobby is playing basketball: The highly-competitive Ripken negotiated a clause in Orioles contract allowing him to play pick-up basketball, something banned from most players’ contracts.
Favorite sports announcer is Davey Lopes: Lopes was the Orioles first base coach at the time. I find nothing online to indicate that Lopes was an announcer. Was it a joke by Ripken?
Favorite player as a kid was Brooks Robinson: Ripken ranks with Robinson as two of the best infielders in Orioles history.
Pet peeve is answering questionnaires: LOL
Where he is now: A TBS broadcaster and owner of RipkenBaseball, one of the country’s largest youth instructional organizations.
