POA patient Nate Winters, who lost his left leg in a boating accident in 2008, allowed one unearned run in four-plus innings in his first varsity game since then. (The following is an excerpt from Fanhouse article) “He’s just a fierce, fierce competitor,” longtime Winter Park baseball coach Bob King said. “It’s why he was able to come back so quickly. It’s why he’s alive today. Forget baseball, it’s the only reason he survived.” He left opposing batters baffled by his curveball and surprised by his control. He left a crowd of about 500 — friends, family, baseball curious — inspired, in awe, cheering and smiling with every pitch. For those that knew his story, there were tears of pride and joy.

“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
