Cal Ripken Jr.: Baseball legend turned children's book author

Baseball Hall-of-Famer Cal Ripken Jr. is a sports legend, known for having played a record 2,632 consecutive games with the Baltimore Orioles. But Ripken can now add "children's book author" to his resume.

Ripken has written a new book called "Hothead", the story of a young baseball player who learns to control his hot temper– a character modeled after Ripken's young self. American Morning's Kiran Chetry talks to the baseball legend turned author about his newest feat.
