“POA Above Knee Amputee Patient Nate Winters Returns to Pitching/Baseball!” – video by local TV station WFTV (3/24/10)

At the time Nate Winters lost his leg in a boating accident 20 months ago he was already highly rated by college recruiters interested in signing the talented pitcher when he completed high school. One of the first goals Nate set for himself when he began his rehabilitation was to return to the mound as a member of the Winter Park High School JV baseball team. With a lot of hard work and determination Nate was able to achieve that goal this week! We at POA are very proud of him, and look forward to watching Nate succeed at whatever goals he chooses to pursue in the future. click here to view video
