Cal and Billy Ripken

Unlike the other sets of brothers on this list, the Ripken boys were the only ones to play together on a Baltimore sports team. The Orioles took Cal (right) in the second round of the 1978 draft (and as we all know well, he went on to play a bunch of baseball games in a row). Four years later, the O's selected Billy and the brothers ended up playing seven seasons together, including one with their father, Cal Ripken Sr., as manager.
