On Sept. 5, 1995, legendary baseball player Cal Ripken Jr. breaks the record for most consecutive games played. By playing in his 2,131st game, the Baltimore Orioles’ shortstop broke Lou Gherig’s record. Ripken’s streak began on May 30, 1982. The future Hall of Fame player continued to build on his streak up to 2,632, but on Sept. 19, 1998, he took himself out of a game. Ripken retired after the 2001 season and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2007. A record 75,000 attended his induction. Ripken’s streak stands today.
