Believe it or not, Tim Tebow is still playing professional baseball and it seems to be going pretty well.
The former NFL player decided to give another sport a shot a few years back and despite some somewhat underwhelming play throughout his short baseball career, Tebow has always been good for a couple long balls. The Heisman Trophy winner proved that once again on Thursday.
Tebow recently joined the Binghamton Rumble Ponies and hit a three-run home run on his very first pitch for the New York Mets’ Double-A team. As you might expect, the crowd went wild. (RELTED: Tim Tebow Cranks A Homer In First At-Bat With The Columbia Fireflies)
The University of Florida standout started his baseball career with Class A Columbia and moved on to Class A Advanced in St. Lucie, according to USA Today. If he keeps hitting homers like he did on Thursday, there’s no limit to how far he could go.
First pitch and it’s GONE! @TimTebow goes deep in his first Double-AA at bat!
