Jameis Winston’s suspension from the Florida State baseball team is over.
Four days after Winston’s suspension from the team was announced, following his failure to pay for prepared food that he took from a grocery store Tuesday, FSU coach Mike Martin confirmed that his closer was back on the team.
“Winston is reinstated,” Martin said after the Seminoles’ 7-1 victory against Minnesota on Sunday. “He finished his community service and as soon as he did he came over here, and we reinstated him.”
Although the two-sport star was not arrested for theft, Publix and the Leon County Sheriff’s Office agreed to let Winston enter a pre-trial diversion program that required him to complete 20 hours of community service.
Winston, who was not at Dick Howser Stadium before the Seminoles and Gophers met for Game 3 of their series, was first spotted in the FSU dugout in the second inning. And he was in full uniform.
After the Seminoles’ three-game sweep of the Gophers, which Winston did not participate in, Martin was asked if he considered suspending the two-sport star beyond his community service obligation.
