Tim Tebow is done with football, that much is certain, but that doesn’t mean he’s done with athletics.
The former Heisman Trophy winner made headlines last month for saying that he wanted to give baseball a chance, and blew scouts away enough to earn a contact with a Major League team.
The New York Mets thought enough of the former quarterback to give him a chance in their system, and already that chance is paying off Big Time! Seriously, this is the kind of thing movies are made of.
While participating in his first instructional league game for his new profession, Tebow did something pretty special that may be a sign of what is to come. If anything, it only adds to the legend that is Tim Tebow.
Tim has always had people doubting him at every level he’s competed at, and every time he proves those same people wrong, and this example is no different.
Some scouts said that Tebow was simply wasting his time by trying to play Major League Baseball, but after what happened in his first game, they might be singing a different tune.
When Tim stepped up to the plate for his first at-bat, surely the nerves were eating away at him, but that didn’t last long. As a matter of fact, those nerves probably went away before the first pitch, as that was all it took for Tebow to turn, and crush the ball out of the park.
That’s right, Tim Tebow saw one pitch, and hit a home run.
Is this a sign that perhaps Tebow is meant to be playing ball, or was this just an example of beginner’s luck (highly doubtful)? Either way, it’s pretty epic that the man with all of those doubters was able to tune them out, and crush that sucker!
The road to the MLB is a long one, but already this man of faith is proving that he’s ready to compete at a high level. To come into a game, and hit a home run off live pitching after taking YEARS off from the sport, that’s nothing short of impressive. Good luck Tim! We hope this is just the beginning of what looks to be a promising baseball career!
