In Memory Of Daniel Winstead!!

Daniel Winstead was a Proud Member of the DFW Rangers. He was the type of player that was always a pleasure watching him play, because was the one of the best players on the field every single week. Daniel came into the league in 2011 as a member of the NTX Nationals and led them to the Fall National League Championship Game, then he moved to the DFW Rangers where he won the 2012 Premier League Championship as a member of the DFW Rangers and also won a Summer League Collegiate Championship. Daniel was a great pitcher, he was the kid that you enjoyed watching his skills on the field, he was always respectful to his coaches and he met a lot of great friend in his time in our Baseball League. Daniel had a great passion for the game and he looked forward to every single game, he wanted to be on the field 24/7.

Daniel also played a few seasons with the FW Bulldogs and Arl. Texans.
