Tim Tebow Crushes Opposite Field Home Run In First Minor League At-Bat

By Timothy Downs

I must admit that as a lifelong New York Mets fan, I wasn’t incredibly excited when GM Sandy Alderson decided to sign college football legend Tim Tebow to a minor-league deal.

Nothing against Tebow, but the move felt like nothing more than a publicity stunt and didn’t improve the MLB roster.

And after a tough spring training, Tebow’s prospective baseball career didn’t seem to have much steam heading into low-A ball with the Columbia Fireflies.

However, on Thursday evening, Tebow, 29, clobbered an opposite field homer in his first at-bat.

Here’s a look at it from the crowd. Apparently, Tebow stopped at second base during his trip around the diamond as the outfielder played the ball as if it was a double after it landed in play.

It remains to be seen whether or not Tebow can hit on a consistent basis, but that dinger must have felt good after all the negative press he’s received from dopes like me this spring…
