As a child I was always a fan of baseball. I collected baseball cards and until I got into Middle School, I would guess that I had almost all of the cards that were out there and I knew every player. I also knew everything there was to know about baseball both past and present. Since that time my love for the game remains, but it is somewhat less than it was when I was a child. I still was excited to hear that I would have the chance to meet a legend. That’s right, I found out that I was going to be able to meet the one and only Cal Ripkin by attending the Modern Media Men Summit in Atlanta last week.
As the opening speaker, we were able to hear him recall some of his funny and important moments as well as talking about the importance of leadership in all facets of life. After his speech we were lucky to have the chance to talk to him and meet him in person and he was gracious enough to allow us to get pictures with him, so needless to say I was happy to get one, and then the next day winning an autographed baseball from him thanks to Chevrolet!
For me this was a great opportunity and one that I will not forget!
