Winston reiterated Wednesday that he plans to play baseball again this spring in spite of his elevated notoriety after leading Florida State to a 34-31 win over Auburn in the VIZIO BCS National Championship on Monday.

Winston played baseball last spring, too, serving as an outfielder and one of the Seminoles' top relief pitchers.
