Billy Ripken, otherwise known as Billy the Kid is a former infielder in Major League Baseball. Billy was selected by the Orioles in the 1982 MLB draft in the 11th round, and went on to play for the minor league affiliate of the team before being called up to the Baltimore Orioles major league team in 1987. His first game on July 11 was the first time in baseball history that a father managed two sons on the same major league team. Billy was a player that laid it all out on the field all the time. That style of play, while it was exciting to watch, resulted in a large number of injuries during his career. When he was healthy Billy was a part of history. He had the first RBI in interleague history and has the 22nd-best all-time fielding percentage of a major league second baseman at .987. Since retiring from the game Ripken has kept busy, forming the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation in 2001 with his brother Cal Jr as well as being the first base coach for the United States National Team during the 2009 World Baseball Classic.
