Zooey Deschanel

Called Out for 'Fleeing'

the World Series

10/24/2011 7:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Game 4 of the World Series was AWESOME last night ... with the Cardinals nearly mounting a 9th inning comeback ... but Zooey Deschanel wouldn't know it, because she LEFT IN THE 6TH INNING!!

Zooey sang the national anthem before the game (great job, BTW) ... and then sat with her "New Girl" castmates in some super-expensive, close-to-the-action seats.

In the 4th inning, the camera cut to the actors ... and Fox announcer Joe Buck gave 'em props ... saying, "A lot of times, the stars have their moment on TV and then they just bolt."

But when the cameras cut back to Zooey's seats in the 7th inning ... they were empty.

Buck joked, "Maybe they're just out getting a snack ... all of 'em at once."

After the game, Zooey went to Twitter to explain her early departure ... saying, "Would have loved to have watched the whole game but I had to catch a plane so I can go to work tomorrow. That's all guys. I'm not a jerk."

As if baseball didn't have enough problems they bring in someone who has ruined every movie she was ever in.

It's not her fault that baseball is about as exciting as watching paint dry.

Since when does she sing?? & how dare she, I read somewhere that she was mad being told she looks like Katy Perry because she thinks she shouldn't be compared to someone that is doing something completly different than her, meaning Katy is a singer & she is an actress. Well then WTF Zooey??

You people and your name-calling and rude comments need to grow up! I rarely read TMZ any more due to your pathetic comments. She had to catch a plane. And why all the negative vibes? Alot of growing up to do people...

Lay off our Zooey. She's a hard working sweetie-pie, and did a fantastic job with the anthem.

Um, why does she owe anyone an apology about leaving a baseball game?

Who cares when she leaves!!! She stayed through half the game. There is no rule that says just because you sing the National Anthem means you half to watch two crappy teams play baseball!

i was at the game and sat about 10 rows or so behind zooey, she was very sweet and took pics for fans, and didnt have any body guards and was very nice to everyone when walking out shes not a jerk at all and had to leave because she needed to hop on a flight , so RELAX people!

I don't necessarily think they're jerks, but I really don't understand giving celebrities free tickets to the most important game in the MLB, only to have them leave early because they "have to catch a flight." Laaaaame. Let a REAL FAN who actually WANTS to be there buy the tix. Or better yet, instead of wasting tickets on the celebs, if they want to give away some so bad, give them to a family that'd never have the money to be able to go see the World Series on their own.

BDoll-Zooey is actually a singer/actress(she's the singer for She and Him)and she could kick Katy Perry's over-rated ass,as well as Russell Brand's. She's also an avid Dodger fan who attends their games regularly,so it's not like she's not a baseball fan.

Thanks K-Dog for filling me in I guess I don't know enough about her. But then that makes her comment towards Katy even more dumb right? I just thought her getting mad for being compared to her was unwarranted.
