The star of Sunday’s Phillies-Padres game was not a major league player, but a young child who was filmed drinking a from a beer bottle in the stands at Citizens Bank Park. Video of kid drinking beer(?) at Philadelphia Phillies Baseball game As of Monday, the child, who appears to be three or four, remains unidentified, as do the surrounding adults and the actual contents of the bottle. The video is part of the official broadcast of the game. The Huffington Post, New York Post, Fox29, Deadspin, TheFightins.com and other websites posted the video. Phillies spokeswoman Bonnie Clark was not available for comment and Major League Baseball spokesman Patrick Courtney, who acknowledged that he had seen the video, declined to comment. Courtney said the league is seeking the removal of the clips from YouTube because of the website’s “unauthorized use of in-game footage.” This is a frequent practice, said Courtney, as people often post videos from sports broadcasts.

Secondly, notice how that clip doesn't show the childs reaction to what he is drinking? If he was really drinking beer, he most likely would have a reaction that we would see on his face, however we don't get to see it in this video.
First of all, we don't know what was actaully in the bottle. Beer, maybe, water, juice ?

Probably $8.00 a bottle, it has been a while since I've been to a Phillies game.
I tend to agree with Aggie Mans post above.

Sports venues like this usually sell beer in plastic bottles nowadays. They look just like glass, but the cap is oversized compared to a glass one.

Even if there was no beer in the bottle, I am surprised they allow glass bottles in the stadium. In Canada, I have always only seen cans, or the beer poured into unbreakable cups I am surprised there isn't more of a problem of broken glass laying around.
