Cal Ripken Jr

Cal Ripken Jr. began his storied 21-year Major League Baseball career in 1981. The "Iron Man" set a record by playing in 2,632 consecutive games from 1982 to 1998, earning two MVP Awards and a World Series championship along the way.

Cal was clearly a leader on the Oreals, and shows the 7 traits of being a leader very well. He would take responsibility whenever he was at fault and or had a bad game. He had a goal, and clear vision on how to get there. His over all goal was to win a world championship with the Oreals. He had good priorities, which was, being a team player, and giving 100% every day. He kept a win win mind set and was all about "we" not "me". He was a great listener and learner. He would spend our studying and then passing along his knowledge to the younger players. He loved his team and loved growing as a team. Ripken took good care of himself and his teammates. He ate well and was in great shape his whole career.
