Fans have voted Cal Ripken as the Orioles' Major League Baseball Hometown Hero. The first 10 "winners" were revealed on ESPN as Ripken, Hank Aaron for Atlanta, Frank Thomas for the White Sox, Dontrelle Willis for Florida, Babe Ruth for the Yankees, Reggie Jackson for Oakland, Mike Schmidt for Philadelphia, Wade Boggs for Tampa Bay, Joe Carter for Toronto and Gary Carter for Washington. I would have assumed Jeff Conine for the Marlins, but, whatever. Anyone think Brooks Robinson was more deserving than Ripken?

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. - Gary Carter apparently has made peace with his split Hall of Fame personality. Does he want to be remembered as a Montreal Expo? Or a New York Met?
