Mets' Tim Tebow hits home run in 1st Double-A at-bat

Tim Tebow playing for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies Mets' Tim Tebow hits home run in 1st Double-A at-bat

Former Heisman Trophy victor Tim Tebow blasted a home run Thursday on the first pitch of his first-ever Double-A at-bat, and he did it against the Portland Sea Dogs. The former Heisman Trophy victor and National Football League quarterback began his second season of professional baseball by going 1 for 4 as the starting left fielder and seventh hitter in the order. Tebow batted seventh in the order, and his debut homer came in the first inning with two men on base.

The Tebow homer was especially surprising after he looked completely overmatched in spring training with the Mets.

"He comes in, gets his swings in early".

"He's another ballplayer. I understand all the excitement because it's Tim Tebow", Wilpon said. He's a hard worker.

After posting a less-than-stellar.656 OPS across two levels of Single-A ball in 2017, the Mets made a surprise announcement this spring: Tebow was earning a promotion with a jump to Double-A. He was hampered by a left ankle sprain and had been used exclusively as a designated hitter or pinch hitter.

Teddy Stankiewicz struggled as Portland's starting pitcher.

"Any time you have support, our entire team is feeling really good", Tebow said.

"He works very hard at his craft, and his passion and work ethic rub off on other players", he said. I wish him all the best. He's a 30-year-old playing Double-A for the first time.
