WATCH VIDEO: Tim Tebow hits three-run home run on first pitch at Double-A | CCTV News
Tim Tebow wasted no time.
The Mets outfielder, who was making his season debut at Double-A Binghamton, clubbed a three-run home run on the first pitch he saw, giving the Rumble Ponies a 5-0 lead.
Tebow received the unlikely promotion coming out of spring training, with Mets GM Sandy Alderson saying he thinks the former quarterback will eventually reach the major leagues. A team source told the News this spring that Tebow’s arrival in Queens could come as soon as this September, when MLB rosters expand.
Tebow spent last season between low and high Class-A ball, batting .226 with eight homers and 52 RBI in 126 games.
