The Mid-Atlantic Sports Network (MASN) announced their plans today to celebrate the Hall of Fame induction of Cal Ripken Jr. this coming weekend from Cooperstown, NY. MASN’s Jim Hunter will be in Cooperstown to provide updates before, during and after Orioles and Nationals games throughout the weekend on O’s Xtra and Nats Xtra.
The special coverage begins on Tuesday, July 27 at 6 p.m. with Cal Ripken Jr.’s press conference and the official Hall of Fame send-off ceremony. Hunter’s Cooperstown updates will begin on Thursday, July 26 at noon.
Additionally, MASN’s magazine show for the Orioles, O’s Access, will have special episodes before and after the induction featuring interviews with Cal and his teammates, as well as a recap of the induction ceremony.
Throughout his career, “The Iron Man” attended 19 All-Star games and was twice selected as the All-Star MVP. Ripken spent his entire career, 21 seasons, in Baltimore.
Ripken was elected to the Hall of Fame in January with 98.53% of votes -- the third highest vote percentage in history behind Tom Seaver and Nolan Ryan and the highest total for any position player.
In honor of his induction, the network will re-air Cal’s record-breaking 2131 game – September 6, 1995 on Sunday night at 7:00 p.m.
