WSMV-TV: Cal Ripken Jr. slings paint to spread positive energy

He just keeps going and going….

Baseball great Cal Ripken Jr. is teaming up with Energizer Batteries on a 13-city tour to bring positive energy to communities.

The project is part of a revitalization of an East Nashville neighborhood that Habitat for Humanity officials hope will spread from one home to another.

The Mets shortstops are the anti-Cal. Nice charity work, Cal.

I read elsewhere that Utica was on the original itinerary, but that stop was moved to Aberdeen at Ripkenā€™s request.
