'Housewives' Star

Big Trouble for

Lil' League Beer

1/26/2011 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Baseball and beer go together like peanut butter and jelly -- unless the game is going down at a little league field ... and "Desperate Housewives" star Doug Savant learned that lesson the hard way.

TMZ has learned Savant was recently suspended by his kid's L.A. little league -- after a concerned parent noticed the actor secretly downing a brew out of a paper cup while in the stands.

We're told the parent in question confronted Doug -- calling him out for violating park rules -- and the poor guy had to face the Board of Directors soon after the incident.

Savant -- who's actually president of the damn league -- was suspended for an entire weekend. He couldn't be reached for comment.

slow news day    

You know it’s a slow news day when TMZ is running a story like this.
Doug Savant is probably a well liked person in the league, and no one wants the ‘Snitch” around. Why else would someone want to smear the good name of a man who volunteers hundreds of hours to a thankless job? Being president of any youth league is a 100% volunteer, non-paid position.
You always see people at youth baseball games discreetly enjoying an adult beverage. I wish that ‘parent in question’ would tell me something. It would not be a pretty sight for the snitch.
I agree with rex Kramer “snitches get stitches’

People do that all the time at our little league games. They don't advertise it but they do it. All the parents would be suspended if it was enforced!

He should have used those sippy cups they sell at Old Navy. They're plastic but look like a real coffee cup from a coffee shop. Only 5 bucks and allows for on the dl drinking anywhere anytime.

OooooNooo!    

Can you say "drinking problem?" I think you can.
Anyone who has to hide their drinking and can't go without booze for a child's public baseball game, needs to check into a program.

Really? This is news? Because this dude is the only man in america that has ever had a beer, in a paper cup no less, at a park? He wasn't drunk. He had a beer, at the park, on a weekend in LA.

What a SNITCH! And a LOSER! LOSERRRRRRRRR!
