FSU Suspends DH Holland For Shoplifting

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Florida State coach Mike Martin suspended infielder John Holland indefinitely Tuesday after the freshman was arrested on suspicion of shoplifting at an Omaha sporting goods store.

The suspension was announced a few hours before the Seminoles faced UCLA in the College World Series. Holland was the Seminoles’ designated hitter in their first two CWS games. The infielder was batting .243 for the season, and appeared in 41 games, 16 as a starter.

Holland went before a judge Tuesday morning and paid a $50 fine. City prosecutor Martin Conboy said the case is closed.

A message was left for Holland at his parents’ home in Duluth, Ga.

Martin said that Holland “made a serious error in judgment.” The coach said the university would have no further comment.
