Book Title: The Only Way I Know

Author: Cal Ripken, Jr. and Mike Bryan

Book Description:

Cal Ripken represents class in every sense of the word. He is honest, humble, hardworking, a family man, and a team player. My admiration for Cal is not based on his profession as a professional baseball player but on his work ethic, his love for his family and his desire to play for the same team for his entire career. He showed up for work every day. He didn't complain about injuries or not feeling good. He put his team first and just played, every day, without seeking personal awards or recognition. If we all modeled our life after someone like Cal Ripken, Jr., our world would be a much better place.
