Ripken made his Major League debut on August 10th in the Orioles' first game of the second half of the strike-shortened season. But his first start came in the second game of a double header two days later against the Kansas City Royals. This collection has 34 images of Ripken from that start, all while in the field at shortstop (and most images solo). Also includes two images of George Brett, an action shot of Eddie Murray at bat, as well as several other game shots. But the focus us clearly on Ripken. All the photos are farily tight on the action, suggesting the the use of a zoom lens and/or close proximity. Nonetheless, likely taken by an amateur photographer. Ripken would win the Rookie of the Year award the following season, but these represent what are surely among the eariest Major League images of the future Hall-of-Famer.
