Heisman winner Winston could face Yankees in exhibition game

The New York Yankees play an exhibition game against Florida State on Tuesday in Tampa, Fla., which means the Yankees could face Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston.

Winston is the closer on the Seminoles' baseball team, and he has allowed just one hit and no runs in four innings of work this season.

Tuesday's game at Steinbrenner Field is just a spring exhibition, so Winston may not face the Yankees' regular starting lineup if he does pitch.

But seldom do the Yankees face a Heisman Trophy winner - in an exhibition game or otherwise.

Winston told ESPN the Yankees are his favorite team and expects to be nervous if he faces them.

"I think I'm going to be a little starstruck," he said, according to ESPN.
