SUMMARY: On February 4, Sports Legends Museum will present “An Evening with Cal & Eddie” from 6-9 p.m. The exclusive night will feature a “fireside chat” with Ripken and Murray hosted by longtime Baltimore broadcaster Scott Garceau. Ripken and Murray were teammates with the Orioles for nine seasons and earned a World Championship with Baltimore in 1983.
Each guest will receive an item autographed by both Hall of Famers exclusively for the event and have a photograph taken with Ripken and Murray. The evening will also include a cocktail reception providing heavy hors d’ouevres and open bar, and guests will have access to the galleries in Sports Legends Museum.
Baseball’s Iron Man, Ripken was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2007. He spent his entire career with the Orioles (1981-2001) and is the team’s all-time leader in several offensive categories. He played in 2,632 straight games, shattering Lou Gehrig’s mark of 2,130, and recorded 3,184 hits, 431 home runs, 19 straight All-Star appearances, and two Most Valuable Player Awards over his 21 seasons in Major League Baseball.
One of baseball’s most productive hitters from the late 1970s through the 1990s, Murray was a member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame’s Class of 2003. He is one of four players in history with 500 home runs and 3,000 base hits, joining only Hank Aaron, Willie Mays and Rafael Palmeiro. The all-time career RBI leader among switch-hitters, Murray was a three-time Gold Glove Award winner at first base and an eight-time All-Star. He also compiled six consecutive top-10 finishes in voting for the Most Valuable Player Award. Murray was a staple at first base for 12 seasons for the Orioles (1977-88, 1996).
Proceeds from the event benefit the Babe Ruth Birthplace Foundation, a registered 501 (c)(3) organization.
