CRAIG, Colo. -- 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 11-5 to the Bakersfield Curve.

Triple Crown Sports features a franchise system aimed at pitting top teams from across the country against each other.

Clemens' agent, Randy Hendricks, did not immediately return a call Monday. Clemens has racked up 322 wins and 4,240 strikeouts in his 21-year major league career.

I love watching those videos on "Real TV" where they show parents getting into a huge brawl over a call while their kids stand by wondering what the hell is going on. :laugh: And they are supposed to be our role models huh? ;)
