I thought the recent commentary regarding the game where Cal Ripken Jr. broke Lou Gehrig’s record by reader Syd Gernstein, “Me, Dad and Cal Ripken Jr.: My hero stood outside the gate” (Sept. 10), was exceptional. It made me very emotional.

What a wonderful memory of such a momentous occasion and what the father did for his son to take advantage of an opportunity to get his son into that historic game, even though it meant he (the father) ended up outside the gates. What a special father-son bond!
