A Maine prosecutor said members of Westbrook High School’s baseball team have paid restitution for vandalizing athletic fields after they won the state championship. Cumberland County District Attorney Stephanie Anderson said Tuesday that after their June 15 championship victory, some players celebrated at a South Portland home near the city-owned Wainwright fields complex. She said partygoers migrated to the complex, where they damaged fields and golf carts, tipped over garbage cans and lacrosse goals, and left behind beer cans. In exchange for Anderson not filing criminal charges and keeping their names confidential, each player has paid $500 restitution and performed 40 hours of community service work.
