BALTIMORE, Md. — On the Sidelines with Shawn Stepner is a podcast focused on what makes sports figures from Baltimore and Maryland tick, from life in the game to life away from the field, court or ice.

For Episode Eight (very appropriate) WMAR-2 Sports Reporter Shawn Stepner sits down with Orioles legend Cal Ripken Jr.

The Baseball Hall of Famer shares stories from growing up in Maryland, in a baseball family, and lessons he learned from his father, Cal Ripken Sr.

He lets us know the biggest regret of his baseball career.

What does the No. 2,632 mean to him now, so many years after he set the record for consecutive Major League games played?

What’s his favorite team he played on during his career?

What does he think the future holds for him within the Orioles organization?

It’s all here in this wide-ranging conversation.
