Billy Ripken Biography
Billy Ripken was born December 16, 1964 in Havre de Grace, Maryland and is a radio personality for XM Satellite Radio and is a former infielder in Major League Baseball from 19871998. He threw and batted right-handed.
When Ripken made his major league debut on July 11, 1987, it marked the first time a father has managed two sons on the same team. Ripken played alongside his brother, Cal Ripken, Jr, and was managed by his father, Cal Ripken, Sr. as a member of the Baltimore Orioles from 19871988. When all three Ripkens appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated on May 2, 1988, the Orioles had lost their first 18 games of the season (they would lose three more before collecting their first win against the Chicago White Sox), and the photo was used in an emblematic fashion to symbolize frustration at the team's struggles.
Ripken remained with the team through the 1992 season and returned for a short stint later in his career (1996). While Ripken came up to the Majors as a second baseman, he did play two games at third in 1988. During the latter part of his career with the Texas Rangers (1993-1994, 1997) Cleveland Indians (1995) and Detroit Tigers (1998) he became a utility infielder-- playing every position on the infield, except catcher.
