POA’s Nate Winters allowed only one run in his first varsity start since losing his leg (AK) less than two years ago! “Orlando Sentinel” and “Fanhouse” articles dated 4/13/2010


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.
