Vote for Ripken’s All-Star homer in 2001 as memorable midsummer moment

Voting for the All-Star Game is over, and we’ll soon know which Orioles will be representing Baltimore at the Midsummer Classic, which will be played July 12 in Phoenix.

But while player choices are no longer up for vote, you can still cast your ballot for the top moments in All-Star Game history.

A list of 16 memorable moments has been whittled to eight choices, and one of them is very Orioles-centric: the home run by Cal Ripken Jr. in the 2001 All-Star Game, the last in the storied career of the Iron Man. Who could forget the call from ESPN’s Charley Steiner: “Did he do it? Did he do it? He did! ... Who wrote this script?”

Voting for the final four All-Star Game memorable moments closes later today, so there’s still a chance to send Ripken’s blast to the next round.

You can vote here up to 25 times today.
