Cal Ripken Jr. Comes to Town and Country

Baseball Hall of Famer, Cal Ripken Jr. is in Town and Country Tuesday as the master of ceremonies for a hall of fame that has nothing to do with baseball.

Major League Baseball Hall of Famer, Cal Ripken, Jr. is in Town and Country Tuesday, as the Master of Ceremonies for a hall of fame that’s not baseball.

Ripkin Jr. will help to induct an area resident into the Energizer Keep Going Hall of Fame at the headquarters in Town and Country. 

A spokesperson for the event said it's an effort to recognize everyday people. The hall of fame was started six years ago, according to event coordinators, to honor those people who share the "keep going spirit" of the Energizer Bunny and use their spirit to have a positive impact and make a difference in their community.

Ripkin Jr. is an honorary inductee. Event coordinators said Ripkin Jr. induct the nephew of action Kevin Kline, also named Kevin Kline, into the hall of fame Tuesday. Kline grew up in St. Louis, graduated from Oakville High School and now lives in Houston, where he works as a a morning show radio host. Kline is being recognized for his work with his foundation, the Snowdrop Foundation, which raises funds for pediatric cancer research and scholarships for college-bound cancer patients and survivors. 

Town and Country - Manchester Patch plans to cover the event, so check back for that story.

Correction: Patch originally posted that Kevin Kline is Cal Ripkin Jr.'s nephew. The article has been updated to reflect the correction.
