Jameis Winston has been reinstated to the Florida State Seminoles' baseball team after completing 20 hours of community service as part of his punishment for a shoplifting citation he received on Tuesday, according to Tallahassee.com's Natalie Pierre.

The Heisman Trophy winner allegedly took crab legs from a local grocery store without paying for them and was given a citation by local police. Winston later released a statement accepting blame for the incident and entered into a pre-trial diversion program that required him to complete community service.

Winston serves as the Seminoles' closer and has five saves and an ERA of 1.50 this season.
