In Tim Tebow’s first at bat as a professional baseball player, Tebow went yard with a shot to left center field.
His debut comes a little less than a month after holding a workout for MLB scouts, and less than a few weeks after the New York Mets signed him to their instructional league roster.
That just happened.
Tim Tebow just hit a home run in his FIRST at bat … on the FIRST pitch … in his FIRST instructional league game.
Tebow — who signed a minor league contract with the NY Mets — bombed it to left center field.
He was greeted at the plate by his teammates — who were all going nuts!
Take a look at this amazing moment.
Tebow switched sports after successfully being a Heisman winning college quarterback, but an NFL career which saw several ups and downs.
He is a favorite among conservatives, he perpetually leads by example with a strong Christian faith.
Last year Tebow was considered polarizing by the media, but demonstrated his faith and charity by taking time to visit sick kids at the Wolfson Children’s Hospital. One fan in particular, his bed decked out in Florida Gators gear (where Tebow played), was overwhelmed that the famous quarterback would take the time to visit him.
