Baseball's "Iron Man" Cal Ripken Jr. Now Available for Lectures

Leading Authorities is proud to announce our exclusive representation of “Iron Man” Cal Ripken Jr. for lectures.

The personification of perseverance, commitment, leadership, and excellence, Ripken motivates audiences with his story of doing what’s right, every single day, to achieve success.

TRUE BASEBALL LEGEND. For 21 seasons, Ripken played in more than 3,000 games for the Baltimore Orioles, redefining the shortstop position into one that demonstrates both defensive and offensive skill. A 19-time All-Star and two-time American League Most Valuable Player, this year marks 25 years since his shattering of Lou Gehrig’s consecutive-games-played record by more than 500.

INSPIRING LESSONS-LEARNED ON AND OFF THE FIELD. Throughout his career, Ripken was admired for his consistency, hard work, and loyalty. Author of the recently released book, Just Show Up: And Other Enduring Values from Baseball’s Iron Man, he blends insights from sports, business, and a life well-lived to discuss the timeless values he has lived by, share stories of what it took to keep the streak alive, and the skills that were key to his success.

AMBASSADOR OF THE GAME. Using the platform that baseball has provided him, Ripken is dedicated to helping grow the game he loves worldwide. From launching the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation to being named a U.S. Sports Diplomacy Envoy, Ripken is committed to using the power of baseball to promote positive global social change.

Cal Ripken Jr. is a baseball legend; but legends aren't born, they're made. A leader whose accomplishments stem from a lifetime of hard work, he inspires all types of audiences to achieve their own brand of success.
