Baltimore Orioles legend Cal Ripken Jr. claims he belongs on a ball field -- not in a ballroom.

In an interview with CYInterview.com, Ripken was asked if he ever had any interest in becoming the first baseball player to appear on "Dancing with the Stars" -- to which he responded, "probably not."

The Orioles legend admits to having "two left feet"...  and although he accomplished almost every imaginable milestone during his 21-year career, he is still "uncomfortable with the attention away from the field."

Sorry, Tom Bergeron.
