What better way to kick off SPIN is a Four Letter Word than a visit with Baltimore Orioles great and Baseball Hall of Fame shortstop, the “Iron Man” Cal Ripken, Jr! Cal joins John Maroon for a sit-down to talk about their long-time friendship, forged from John’s first year with the Orioles as Public Relations Director in 1995 - the same year Cal broke Lou Gehrig’s consecutive games streak - through the end of Cal’s career and into his business ventures, starting Ripken Baseball and the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation.

When John started Maroon PR 15 years ago, it was Cal who returned the favor becoming the first client and one of the organization’s most-trusted allies.

Cal’s unique ability to provide insight into the current media landscape, compared to his playing career, comes through in this interview as he discusses the impact of social media on the game today. How would that have changed Cal's outlook on privacy during his playing career? Cal also talks about the journey into his own social media and how that has furthered his brand and how fan interaction has changed because of it.
