Ripken's final season turned into a farewell tour as he was celebrated throughout the league as he made his final stops in each city. Ripken was named MVP of the All-Star Game after homering in the game at Seattle's Safeco Field. Ripken's No. 8 was retired by the Orioles in a ceremony before the final home game of the season.
