Cal Ripken steps to the plate at AMC with The Rookie

Baltimore Orioles Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. is going to be doing some national TV hosting on April 25 in what seems like a match made in baseball and television heaven.

Ripken will serve as host on AMC for a showing of the 2002 film, The Rookie, starring Dennis Quaid. As host, Ripken will "talk candidly about the film, his love of baseball and his record-breaking career" in segments that were taped at the Cal Ripken Baseball Complex in Aberdeen, according to the movie channel.
