Umpire In Royals, White Sox Game Taken To Hospital

Umpire Alfonso Marquez left the Royals and White Sox game in the fifth inning on Monday night for what's being described as heat distress and shortness of breath.

He was taken to St. Luke's in Kansas City and was scheduled to be evaluated Monday evening.

The umpires finished the game with a three-man crew.

This Kansas City weather is miserable. It's hot, humid and obviously unbearable at times.
