Infielder John Holland has been suspended after the freshman was arrested on suspicion of shoplifting at an Omaha sporting goods store.
The suspension was announced this afternoon. 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.
Head coach Mike Martin said that Holland "made a serious error in judgment.'' The coach said the university would have no further comment. Omaha police say security at the Scheels store spotted the 19-year-old Holland and his 23-year-old brother Steve about 4:20 p.m. Monday changing the price tag on merchandise to bring the price down by $12.
The men were booked for shoplifting and released after posting bond.
