Jameis Winston Getting It Done on the Baseball Diamond

So, by now you know that Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston had a huge game last night, leading the Seminoles to the BCS national championship. Winston has emerged as a big-time college QB, not only winning a national title but the Heisman Trophy this season, too. But what tends to get lost in Winston's story is that he's also a top baseball talent. Like Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, Winston is a two-sport threat, able to get it done on the baseball diamond as well as the gridiron.

Need proof? Look no further than the videos the MLB Fan Cave dug out of their archives today, especially this one where Winston guns down a runner at the plate — from halfway into right field:

There's another video of Winston's cannon of an arm on the Fan Cave's site. And be sure to check out our profile of Winston from the November issue of SI Kids for more on his baseball career.
