Tim Tebow, who is currently playing minor league baseball for the St. Lucie Mets, just got a huge gift from one of his biggest fans.

On July 29 the St. Lucie Mets were playing the Charlotte Stone Crabs. Seth Bosch, who has high functioning autism, was sitting in the stands watching as Tebow was about to go up to the plate. Seth decided to walk down closer to him and tried to get his attention.

Tebow turned around and gave Seth a handshake. The crowd cheered and applauded for Seth, as they watched Tebow step up for his at-bat. When Seth returned to his seat he began crying out of excitement over what happened. Tebow then blasted a three-run home run and it was an incredible moment

Seth’s mom Ileanna Bosch told the New York Post, “I started crying too, How does that happen? I think God brought Seth and Tim together.”
