Alcohol in the Dugouts

So, after a recent alcohol related death in Major League Baseball, some teams have begun banning alcohol from their dugouts. This has inspired a minor outrage among players and coaches alike. It inspired this from me...."they've been drinking DURING the games????" I'm always surprised as to the overwhelming focus that people place on alcohol, and how it is so often the center of weekend plans. Yet, most people don't consider this self-medication a problem. I'm just not sure why?
