Jameis Winston came up against the New York Yankees yesterday as his Florida State Seminoles took on the world famous ball club in Tampa.
And, whilst he didn't have the most successful of games - grounding out to second base, and striking out in his two appearances at the plate - the whole experience clearly left a big impression on the 2013 Heisman trophy winner.
The Yankees may have fielded mostly back up roster players in the contest against the Seminoles, but Winston did have the chance to meet some of his baseball heroes after the game.
This included retired Yankee Jorge Posada and captain Derek Jeter who posed with the player for a picture.
The two-sport star had a phenomenal year on the gridiron in 2013. In helping his team to the BCS Championship the then-freshman gained widespread plaudits for his performances.
But apparently that might all have been topped by what happened yesterday:
"It was an honor to meet Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada. Guys that I watched growing up, it was just surreal.
"It was probably better than winning the National Championship," he told media after the game.
High praise indeed from the 20-year old.
Whether Winston can continue to perform in both sports at college level is another question, but it certainly seems he is enjoying the perks while he can.
