Ryan Ripken Wants to Create His Own Path in Baseball

Ryan Ripken has one of the most famous last names in baseball, but he realizes he must make his own way in the sport.  The son of Hall of Famer Cal Ripken, Jr., Ripken is currently playing for the Class A Auburn Doubledays in his third season in pro ball.

However, his short career has been marred by injury and he’s still trying to establish himself.  Growing up, he never thought of his dad as a superstar, but now recognizes the impact his dad had on the sport.  Despite that, the younger Ripken understands he has to put in the hard work, to learn how to deal with the mental and physical stress of baseball’s grinding season.
