Florida State left fielder DJ Stewart has been suspended for 4 games after being ejected from Tuesday nights’ game against rival Florida. The benches cleared in the eighth inning following a confrontation between Stewart and Florida first baseman Zach Powers. Powers was also ejected along with pitcher Danny Young. Stewart will miss this weekend’s series against Boston College and next Tuesday’s game against Florida Gulf Coast.
Florida State Head Coach Mike Martin released the following statement on the suspension:
“I plan to meet with the appropriate national organizations who have oversight of baseball playing rules and address this issue as I feel the punishment does not fit the crime.”
The Florida State Athletics Department, head coach Mike Martin and the Seminole baseball team will have no further comment regarding this matter.
