No. 1: Cal Ripken's consecutive games playing streak

Ripken¿s streak of 2,632 consecutive games played spanned more than 16 years and included that historic night of Sept. 6, 1995, when, with the Angels, President Clinton and Joe DiMaggio on hand, Ripken broke Lou Gehrig's record of 2,130 straight games and took a 22-minute victory lap around Camden Yards.
