Griffey leaves ChiSox game vs. Royals after cramping in leg

KANSAS CITY, Mo.—Ken Griffey Jr. left the Chicago White Sox game against Kansas City in the sixth inning Saturday with what the club said was heat-related cramping in his right leg.

Who could have seen that coming?

I think my favorite moment of the Ken Griffey Jr. era in Chicago was the second single last night. But there are so many good choices.

it was 95 out there with a heat index of 110+

and it would have never happened if there was a retractable roof!

You can move to Chicago, but you can't hide from me. We were meant to be together.

...and Cal Ripken sighs a sigh of sweet relief - the record appears to be safe!

Thanks to Jocketty/Castellini for helping me avoid the frustration of a Griffey injury.

I predict Mike Hampton will soon find his way on the DL...

OMG, cramping! He's done for!

The Sox ask Griffey to play center field, and he gets hurt. I never saw it coming.

Gotta admit, though, I thought Griffey looked really cool wearing Sox black...

Griffey immediately blamed the cramp on Jay Mariotti.

As both a Twins fan and a longtime Griffey supporter, it made me die a little inside.

And now they don't have Danny Richar to fall back on.

Did people laugh it off when Mays was too old to be productive? I dunno but my dad got denied at the airport when he met Willie and said "hey you're willie mays" and Willie said no i'm not... What a douche.

Well Kenny Williams said CF was less likely to cause injuries than corner OF, maybe Griffey would have only lasted one game...

What a douche.
