All-star 27 Countdonw

June 16, 1993

Orioles shortstop Cal Ripken was the leading vote-getter in the 1992 All-Star Game balloting (2,699,773), the most votes for a player since Montreal's Gary Carter in 1982 (2,785,407). Ripken also led the American League in voting in 1985 and 1986. . . . Last year, Ripken became the first American League shortstop to start in nine All-Star Games, breaking the mark set by Luis Aparicio. . . . In 1991 at Toronto's SkyDome, Ripken became the fourth and most recent Oriole to homer in an All-Star Game. He went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer and was named Most Valuable Player as he led the American League to a 4-2 win.
