Ripken receives jersey from Ovechkin after visiting Capitals

Washington Capitals / Twitter

The Washington Capitals had a special visitor at practice on Tuesday when baseball's "Iron Man" and Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. paid the team a visit.

Ripken was spotted behind the team's bench during practice, before stepping into the film room to share some knowledge with the club.

Perhaps Ripken was going to give the Capitals some advice on how to never miss a game, like he did when he set Major League Baseball's streak for consecutive games played (2,632).

Whatever advice he gave to them was enough to warrant a visit from the entire team, including captain Alex Ovechkin who presented Ripken with a custom jersey.
