Tim Terrific: Tebow homers in 1st AB as Mets minor leaguer

Tim Terrific: Tebow homers in 1st AB as Mets minor leaguer

On Thursday the former Heisman Trophy victor hit a 2-run homer in his first at-bat of the season.

The former NFL quarterback hit his second home run in the minor leagues - in only three games with the Class A Columbia (S.C.) Fireflies.

Laugh if you must, but Tim Tebow is having a great time being "one of the guys" in the minor leagues. In his first series of his baseball career, Tebow averaged.231, with 5 RBI and 2 home runs.

Tebow drove the ball to deep left center but briefly stopped at second base thinking it was a ground rule double.

We won't see Tebow on the Mets anytime soon. He told reporters after the game that he wasn't aware he'd hit a homer until the umpire told him to "keep going".

The former Heisman Trophy victor and NFL quarterback has apparently had his fill of the gridiron, exchanging his football cleats for baseball ones.

AT THE PLATE: Tebow is 3 of 13 (.230) with five RBIs.

The Fireflies continue their opening homestand with a three-game set against the Hickory (North Carolina) Crawdads on Monday.
