For the Ripken’s, baseball is the family business.  Cal Ripken Jr. followed his father’s footsteps and now his son Ryan is also hoping to make a career in baseball.

Ryan Ripken, a Senior at Gillman High School recently worked out for the Baltimore Orioles according to a tweet from Mel Antonen.  Ryan played in the Under Armour All-America Baseball Game in 2011 at Wrigley Field and will reportedly play college ball in South Carolina.

The first baseman received several scholarships offers after hitting .353 during his junior year at Gillman.

Ryan, who stands tall at 6′ 6″, is also a local star on the basketball court.

He sounds just like a chip off the old block.
