TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston wants to help Florida State win another national championship — in baseball.

Winston participated in his first baseball practice of the 2014 season on Friday. He quarterbacked the Seminoles to the BCS title and says, "I just want to have an effect on this team like I did the football team."

That would mean hoisting the championship trophy at the College World Series in Omaha.

And that's a possibility. The Seminoles have the talent to be title contenders.

Florida State was picked to win the Atlantic Coast Conference Atlantic Division by the league's coaches and the 6-foot-4, 225-pound Winston is the favorite to win the closer role.

Coach Mike Martin said there are no restrictions on how much Winston is used on the baseball field.
