Jameis Winston takes swings at Yankees

Jameis knows football.

And baseball.

Jameis Winston, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner who quarterbacked Florida State to the national championship, also plays baseball for the Seminoles.

His college dream year continued when FSU played the New York Yankees — who Winston says are his favorite team — earlier today.

As the Noles’ closer, he doesn’t get many at-bats, but he came to the plate twice against the Yankees after entering the game in left field.

The drama ended there, though.

Winston, a switch-hitter batting left-handed, grounded out to second in the sixth inning against minor leaguer Shane Greene.

Winston struck out looking in his second at-bat against Bryan Mitchell, another minor leaguer.

As a pitcher, Winston has one save, allowing only one hit in four scoreless innings this season. He singled against Georgia on Feb. 21 in his lone regular-season at-bat.

Fun anecdote but not a real story. Of all of the things happening in college football, is this the best you got?

And baseball players don’t have to stay in college any set number of years before going pro. Perhaps an MLB future for the kid.
