Presents a biography of the Orioles shortstop, including how having his father and brother in professional baseball has affected his experience in the game

Blackwell North Amer
Since May 30, 1982, Cal Ripken, Jr., of the Baltimore Orioles hasn't missed a game - a marathon performance during which he has 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. Now Cal is about to topple baseball's most unbreakable record - Lou Gehrig's incredible streak of 2,130 consecutive games played.
Iron Man chronicles 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?
