JUST SHOW UP And Other Enduring Values from Baseball's Iron Man

by | Read by Cal Ripken Jr.

Biography & Memoir • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Author/narrator Cal Ripken, Jr., delivers his memoir, which focuses on the meaning that the phrase "just show up" has had in his life. As a baseball player, Ripken was loyal--he stayed with one team, the Baltimore Orioles, his whole career--consistent--a quality he reveals to listeners through many vignettes--and hardworking, as was evident in his breaking of Lou Gehrig's Iron Man record by playing 2,131 consecutive games. In a matter-of-fact delivery he describes conduct not often practiced in today's sports. Older listeners will enjoy Ripken's descriptions of how he succeeded in baseball through respect for and loyalty to his team and coaches. Younger listeners will admire his baseball achievements and his sound life lessons. E.E.S. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2019]
