Tim Tebow, former football player and current brand/alleged baseball player, is hanging out with the Single-A Columbia fireflies before he inevitably goes on TV full-time. He’s done some productive baseball stuff with the Fireflies and might even get moved up at some point this season. Tebow is hitting .211 with an…
On the same day the New York Post runs a cover asking “Why does God hate the Mets?”, they have this extremely related story claiming that Tim Tebow could be in for a promotion.
Here is an excerpt from The MMQB’s big feature about Tim Tebow attempting to become a baseball player. I haven’t been able to read the rest of the story, because as soon as I read this part my eyes rolled so far into the back of my head that now all I can see is my own brain stem:
Tim Tebow, author and former college football quarterback, kicked off his time with the class-A Columbia Fireflies this evening with a bang. The motivational speaker stepped up to the plate against the Augusta Greenjackets and socked a dinger in his very first at-bat.
Mets farmhand Tim Tebow started at left field this afternoon in a spring training game against the Nationals and their ace Max Scherzer. Tebow will begin the season playing Class A ball with the Columbia Fireflies, but he’ll finish up spring training with the Mets, where he’s been having some issues with major league…
So poor lil Tim Tebow, the world-famous football refugee and circumcision doer now trying his hand at baseball, prepared for his first spring-training plate appearance for the New York Mets yesterday by doddering all the way around behind home plate, from the third-base dugout to the first-base side, to take his…
At the start of the bottom of the third inning, New York Mets designated hitter Tim Tebow left the dugout to get some warm-up swings in before stepping into the box. But, strangely, he walked all the way around behind the plate—from the Mets dugout on the third-base side to the on-deck circle in front of the visitors’…
Tim Tebow isn’t a major-league ballplayer, and he isn’t a pro ballplayer in any but the barest, most literal sense. Certainly, if he weren’t famous for playing football and for not having been aborted, no one anywhere would pay him money to play baseball. Look at this shit!
Tim Tebow did a good, brave thing today and if no one else will stand with him, then this blog will: There is no sin in eating guacamole straight. Praise him.
By pretty much any and every baseball metric, aspiring outfielder Timothy R. Tebow did not have a successful stint in the Arizona Fall League. His .194 batting average (.242 slugging) included 20 strikeouts in 70 plate appearances. But when it comes to attracting interest (guilty) in otherwise meaningless games,…
Before he turned into a full-on salesperson with a struggling baseball career, Tim Tebow was briefly a New England Patriot. He was on the team for most of the summer of 2013, but he got cut before the season started. Tebow, fresh off a middling spell in the Arizona Fall League, is now promoting his second book, …
Tim Tebow performed a great feat today, reaching base twice against the Peoria Javelinas. He hit a single in his first at-bat, and he now somehow has a three-game hitting streak. Tebow reached on a fielder’s choice in the fourth, then tried to steal second.
And on the fifth day, his batting average rose again.
Blessed are the merciful, such as Tim Tebow, who is showing mercy to any and all baseballs he could hit in the Arizona Fall League.
ESPN baseball writer Keith Law, who has spent a good chunk of his adult life scouting and evaluating minor league baseball players, finally made it out to the Arizona Fall League to get a good look at Tim Tebow. He was not very impressed with what he saw.
Let me tell you the story of Saint Timothy of Gainesville.
Patrick Mazeika is a catcher currently playing Class A ball in the Mets’ organization. This classifies him both as a person who is struggling to make a living and also as a teammate of ultra-famous Tim Tebow. To Mazeika’s credit, he seems to have found a way to turn the latter circumstance into a lucrative one.
