Tim Tebow Homers on First Pitch in First Instructional League Game
The legend of Tim Tebow just grew. The football star turned baseball player stepped up to the plate today for his first ever at bat as a member of the New York Mets in an Instructional League game against the St. Louis Cardinals. You can guess what happened next. He swung at the first pitch from John Kilichowski and deposited the ball over the wall in left-center for a home run.
The best part of Tebow's dinger is listening to the guy who was seated to the left of home plate getting excited while giving us his play-by-play call of the moment.
I do not expect Tebow to ever make it to the Major Leagues. That is because 99.9% of all human beings who have not picked up a baseball since their junior year of high school do not suddenly develop big league talent at the age of 29. However, this is Tim Tebow we are talking about. If there ever was an exception to the rule, it would apply to #15. I am rooting for him, especially since he is a member of the Mets system.
