Heisman winner Winston suspended by baseball team

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The Florida State baseball team has indefinitely suspended Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston, who is a relief pitcher for the Seminoles.
Baseball coach Mike Martin said in a statement Wednesday that Winston was issued a citation the night before, but he did not give specifics. The Leon County Sheriff's Office has declined comment.
The 20-year-old Winston was investigated last year when a fellow Florida State student reported that he raped her. But prosecutors said there wasn't enough evidence to charge him.
Winston led Florida State to the national championship last season as a freshman, starring in the undefeated Seminoles' 34-31 victory over Auburn in the championship game.
He threw 40 touchdown passes on the season and ran for four more.
Football coach Jimbo Fisher says he supports Martin's decision.
