Cal, Kelly Ripken Have Divorced

April 28th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

Cal and Kelly Ripken have finalized their divorce.

A spokesman for the Orioles hall of fame shortstop and third baseman confirmed the split, which media outlets including The Washington Post report was finalized Thursday in Baltimore County Circuit Court.

The post reports that the details of the divorce settlement and division of property won't be made public. Ripken owns several minor league teams (including the Orioles affiliate Aberdeen IronBirds) and sports complexes, and has been part of TBS baseball broadcasts. He's said to be worth $75 million.

Cal and Kelly married in 1987 and have two children: Rachel, 26, and Ryan, 22. Ryan Ripken was drafted out of college by the Washington Nationals and plays for the Single-A Hagerstown Suns.

"Kelly has been a great mother to two fabulous children and a wonderful, faithful wife for the duration of the parties’ relationship, which lasted more than 30 years,” Kelly Ripken's attorney, Sanford Ain, said in a statement to the post. “This is a difficult time for her and she asks that her privacy and the privacy of her children be respected.”

Ain said the pair have been separated for a while now, and that Kelly Ripken looks forward to continuing philanthropic work, including in women's health.
