What years did Cal Ripken Jr and Chris Hoiles play for the Orioles?
What baseball player was the first to win the rookie of the year award and the MVP award in back to back years?
How about 35 years!?!? The Reds' Dave Concepcion and Barry Larkin have been at it since 1970 (Concepcion). Larkin is gone now so a third SS gets a shot. BALTIMORE ORIOLES 1976-1980...KIKO GARCIA 1981-2001...CAL RIPKEN NO OTHER SHORTSTOPS ON THEIR ROSTER DURING THESE YEARS... YOU CAN'T SAY THAT ABOUT THE REDS COCEPCION..LARKIN..STILLWELL..JUST TO NAME 3 DURING THOSE YEARS FOR YOUR REDS Ripken was not a shortstop in 81...or 82.
in a span of fourteen years Lou Gehrig played 2,130 consecutive games setting a record before his early retirement from baseball due to the disease ALS. Lou Gehrig's record of 2,130 consecutive games played stood until September 6, 1995, when Baltimore Orioles shortstop Cal Ripken, Jr. played in his 2,131st consecutive game to establish a new record.Cal would finish with 2,632 consecutive game over a 16 year period.
