Baseball Hero

For many years, my boys and I have looked up to one player as the epitome of what baseball is all about—Cal Ripken, Jr. We had an opportunity to hear him speak and answer questions today here in Indianapolis, and it was a real treat.

His basic message? There are no shortcuts to success. It is all about heart and hard work, desire and effort. Just the kind of talk you'd expect to hear from a guy who went out and did his job to the best of his ability every day and showed us what it means to love the game.

Thanks, Cal.
