Cal Sr was an MLB coach notably with the Baltimore Orioles, so Cal Jr.’s interest and future career in baseball is unsurprising He had a strong high school career, and was subsequently drafted by the Orioles in 1978, spending the customary few years in minor leagues. Concerning his professional major league career, Ripken played his first game on the 10th August, 1981 at the end of the regular season. In 1982, he played his first full season with 148 hits, 93 RBIs and 90 points, and was elected the Rookie of the Year, plus finishing 30th in the voting for the best player. In 1983, he accumulated 211 safe shot, 27 circuits, 102 RBIs and 121 points to be elected the best player in the major leagues with 32 points ahead of his own teammate Eddie Murray. In 1991, Ripken had the average of .323 with 210 hits, 34 circuits, 104 RBIs and 99 points to be elected the best player. In addition, he was elected to the All-Star game and was voted the best player and won the Silver Slugger Price and Gold Glove for short stops. In addition, he was the first player who was elected the best player on a team that has lost more than 50% of their matches. His rising net worth was obviously well-deserved.

In 1993, he recorded the greatest number of circuits by a shortstop surpassing Ernie Banks. On the 6th September, 1995 Ripken broke the record of Lou Gehrig by playing his 2131th consecutive game, with the President of the USA Bill Clinton in the crowd. At the end of the 5th inning when the game became official, Ripken received a standing ovation from fans that lasted 22 minutes. In 1998, Ripken decided not to play, the first time he had missed a game since 1981 fans gave another ovation before the game.

Ripken announced that he wanted to retire at the end of 2001. He was elected to the All-Star game for the 18th time and hit a home run to win the game. He became the only player who has twice been the best player of an All-Star game. At the end of the season, the last game would be at Yankee Stadium in New York, but because of the attacks of the 11th September 2001 the final game of his career was at Camden Yard. There the Orioles retired his jersey number.

At the beginning of 2007, Ripken Jr. was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum with 537 of 545 votes (98.53%) – only Nolan Ryan and Tom Seaver have exceeded this percentage.

Finally, in the personal life of the former baseball player, Cal married Kelly Geer in 1987; they have two children. In 2016, they have announced their separation.
