Tebow Time is Back
October 31st, 2016 by Brendan Pierce
Just when you thought Timothy Richard Tebow was out of the spotlight, the former Heisman Trophy winner is back competing in professional sports. This time around, Tebow will be trading in his football cleats for baseball spikes.
On September 8, 2016 Tebow signed a minor league contract with the New York Mets in an attempt to fulfill his dreams of becoming a major league baseball player. Before signing his contract with the Mets, Tebow did not play competitive baseball since high school. The Mets assigned Tebow to play for the Scottsdale Scorpions of the Arizona Fall League.
Tebow has been playing all three outfield positions for the Scorpions however, he is only 4 for 32 (.125) during the season. That average is among the worst in the league.
To go along with Tebow trying to pursue his baseball career, he also remains an analyst on the SEC Network. Tebow covers college football and is a co-host for SEC Nation.
We have seen athletes attempt to play different sports at the professional level in the past such as Michael Jordan, Jackie Robinson, and Deion Sanders.
Tebow is a winner. Despite not being the most physically talented athlete, he is a feisty, scrappy, and determined individual that you can never count out. Tebow is off to a shaky start, but do not be surprised if Timothy Richard Tebow shocks the world yet again.
