Now, everyone imagines Winston the NFL quarterback. Winston still pictures himself in spikes and a ballcap. So whether Tuesday was his last appearance against a pro team or just the first of many, Winston will keep playing as if he's going to be, as Martin calls it, "the next two-way big leaguer." "I love both," Winston said. "I've got a strong passion for both. I'll probably have more success in football, but baseball is a passion of mine, and I want to play as long as possible."
