The Philadelphia Phillies are searching for the child who apparently drank from a bottle of beer at a game — but the little toddler is proving elusive.
Video of the unidentified blonde-headed boy came out following the Phillies’ loss to the San Diego Padres.
It shows the boy with a plastic beer bottle in his right hand, drinking from the bottle.
But the Phillies, facing another round of Philadelphia bashing, tell RadarOnline.com their fans are responsible enough to not let a child drink!
“We are confident that our employees and our fans would not allow this to happen if they were aware of it,” said a spokesperson.
The Phillies clubhouse said it has been unable to determine the identity of the child or if the bottle was full or empty, or if it had something other than beer in it.
“We suspect that this was a very brief event, probably involving an empty bottle,” added the spokesperson.
Still, a child protective services agency wants to launch a probe, as RadarOnline.com revealed.
“If the parents did allow the child to drink out of the bottle it is a pure lack of judgment and endangers the child,” said a spokesperson at the Children’s Welfare League of America.
“You don’t know at what point a child can get alcohol poisoning and it’s illegal.
“Probably if your at a game you should be sure to keep substances out of that child’s reach.”
