Tim Tebow Homers In First Day With St. Lucie Mets

Former Gator great and current MLB hopeful Tim Tebow wowed the fans during his debut with the St. Lucie Mets on Tuesday and Wednesday night.


During his first day with the Double-A team, Tebow blasted a two-run shot. It came in his first at-bat of the back-end of a doubleheader off the the Palm Beach Cardinals.

Tebow launched a towering ball just left of the batters eye in center field on a 92 mph 3-1 pitch from Cardinals right hander Junior Fernandez. He totaled three hits overall at the First Data Field.

It was his fourth of the year.

Before being promoted to the St. Lucie Mets, Tebow logged more than 200 at-bats and posted a subpar .648 OPS. But still decent number for somebody who was away from the game for 11 years. He also has a .879 fielding percentage and 14 doubles, three home runs and 22 RBIs in 63 games.

The Mets lost the second game 5-3 after dropping the opener 5-2 in front of 2,315 fans. Tebow finished the two game 3-for-5, a homer, two RBIs and a walk.
