Florida State’s Jameis Winston had a pretty solid baseball year. Graham Watson of Yahoo Sports pointed to the Heisman winner’s stats for the season as to why he had such a great baseball ‘campaign’.
Primarily as a relief pitcher, Winston finished the season with a 1.08 ERA, the best among Seminoles pitchers. In 33.1 innings pitched, Winston had seven saves, the most on the team, allowed just four earned runs, seven walks and struck out 31. Hitters managed a combined .154 batting average in 117 at-bats.
FSU’s baseball team lost in the NCAA World Series Regionals but had a year compiling a record of 43-17 and prior to the playoffs were ranked number 5 in the nation.
With the success he has had on both the baseball and football fields, will he be able to overcome all of the off field issues? Seminole fans are hoping their football team along with Winston can compete for another National Championship, a second Hesiman while stealing hearts and no longer ‘crab legs’. Let’s hope Jameis will mature and let the on field activity be what we hear more about.
