NEWBURYPORT, Mass. (AP) - A former Georgetown high school baseball pitcher who helped lead the team to a division championship has been arraigned on charges he also helped vandalize a rival team’s baseball field.

Police tell The Newburyport Daily News (https://bit.ly/29G4Dua ) that former Georgetown High School pitcher Alexander Bornholdt and two juveniles drove to Triton Regional High School’s baseball field in mid-May and caused $5,000 in damage. Prosecutors say the vandalism, which included pouring paint on the field and dugouts, was in retaliation for a taunting video posted on Snapchat.

The 19-year-old Bornholdt was arraigned this week on a charge of malicious destruction of property. He did not immediately return a phone message left Thursday seeking comment.

The newspaper reports the juveniles have been ordered to complete community service, counseling and pay restitution.
