    Houston Astros pitcher Roger Clemens was asked to leave a youth baseball game over the weekend for arguing a close call that went against his son's team.

    Clemens was at the game Saturday watching his son, Kacy, compete in a 10-and-under game organized by Triple Crown Sports when Clemens contested a call at second base that went against the Katy Cowboys.

    He spit sunflower seeds at an umpire's leg and was asked to leave, said Jim Carpenter, a field supervisor with Triple Crown.

    "I supported the umpire's decision and he (Clemens) respectfully left," Carpenter told the Craig Daily Press.

    Katy lost the game to the Bakersfield Curve, 11-5.


    Yup, that's what we need. More Daddys setting a fine example for the youth of this country to follow. Thanks Roger, thanks a whole lot.

    Lol - true. I guess this one tripped my trigger because I used to call a lot of youth baseball and softball. The kids would have a great time if their parents would just shut the hell up.

    Agreed. Used to coach t-ball and coach pitch. You know, the real little guys. Shoulda heard it when I made sure ALL the kids got to play. You know, becasue at that age, there were already little stars whose parents demanded their son get more playing time.
