Jameis Winston vs. Yankees
By Heather Dinich
It was hardly a major league performance, but Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston still stole the show on a day in which the FSU baseball team faced the New York Yankees.
According to Wallace Matthews of ESPNNewYork.com, Winston broke his bat in half on a foul ball off Shane Greene, the Yankees' third pitcher of the day, and wound up "grounding out weakly to second." In the eighth inning, Winston struck out looking against Bryan Mitchell.
Doesn't matter. Not when you're the Heisman Trophy winner.
All eyes will be on Winston throughout the entire spring, as the top quarterback in the country tries to deliver a second national title to Florida State -- this one in baseball. Winston has said he wants to help the school win its first college baseball championship following 21 appearances in the College World Series. Oh, and of course, he wants to win another one in football, too.
Welcome back to the big leagues, FSU.
