Cal Ripken's first major-league hit came against Dennis Lamp of the Chicago White Sox on Aug. 16, 1981. His last hit came against Frank Castillo of the Boston Red Sox in Game 1 of a doubleheader on Oct. 5, 2001. Ripken finished his career with 3,184...
Tribune staff reporterDusty Baker had exhausted virtually every managerial ploy he could muster--a team meeting, a rearranged batting order and a greater resolve to remain calm under pressure. "We're all taught not to panic," the Cubs manager said. "There is a thin line...
