Finishing in second place in the American League East with an 88-74 record, the Orioles qualified as the AL Wild Card and took on the AL Central Champion Cleveland Indians in the Division Series. Baltimore would dispatch the Indians in four games of the best-of-five series and advanced to the ALCS to take on their division rival New York Yankees. Ripken collected 8 hits in 18 at-bats for a lofty .444 average in Baltimore’s four-game series win. Offered here is one of the sticks used by Ripken during the 1996 ALDS against the Indians that comes directly from the personal collection of Cal Ripken, Jr. This Louisville Slugger P72 model bat displays outstanding game use with a crack on the handle.
