Third Generation Ripken Will Get Opportunity In The Pros

Ryan Ripken, son of baseball legend Cal Ripken Jr. and grandson of former Major League manager Cal Ripken Sr., was drafted in the 15th round of the 2014 MLB Draft by the Washington Nationals.

Ryan will have some big shoes to fill in his attempt to reach the big leagues. His father is a Hall of Famer, and his grandfather was a long-time Baltimore Oriole organization man in various capacities.
