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.
