Cal Ripken is known for being baseball's iron man for achieving 17 years of consecutive games.
Cal Ripken has nothing on John Weaver.
Newark Rotarian John Weaver gets recognized today for a perfect attendance string that began in 1953. That's 60 years!
John's string started a full six years before Ripken was even born. Weaver had already achieved 28 consecutive years of perfect attendance when Ripken started his streak. Weaver has continued his streak 15 years after Ripken ended his.
Maybe Cal Ripken can boast to be the John Weaver of baseball.
