Jameis Winston, Florida State playing the New York Yankees Tuesday


We have seen Florida State Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston have success on the football field as he took home the Heisman Trophy and helped lead his team to the BCS National Championship and now we can see Winson against some professionals on the baseball diamond.

Tuesday the New York Yankees play their first exhibition game of the spring in Tampa and will take on the Florida State baseball team with Jimbo Fisher throwing out the first pitch, according to Andy Fenelon and it will be a good test to see if Winston realize his goal of playing both football and baseball professionally.

With aspirations of following in the footsteps of Deion Sanders and Bo Jackson, Winston has been dominant on the mound as the Seminoles closer this season, limiting batters to a .077 batting average and while he’s not a polished hitter by any means has reached base in both plate appearances in the young season.

Winston is a far better NFL prospect than he is an MLB prospect despite being drafted in the 15th round by the Texas Rangers out of high school, so this may be the only time we see Winston pitching against a team in the Major Leagues.
