Will former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow actually get a real chance at a professional baseball career?
That’s a question that’s likely to be answered next Tuesday.
According to ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter, who first broke the story of Tebow’s quest to take on professional baseball, Tebow’s tryout for Major League Baseball teams will be on Tuesday, Aug. 30, in Los Angeles.
Tim Tebow’s tryout for MLB teams will be a week from today, Aug. 30, in Los Angeles.

Tebow has already landed an offer from an independent league baseball team, but he seems intent on making MLB organizations say “no” before he entertains such offers.
Much like when Michael Jordan joined the White Sox organization, teams are likely to be viewing this showcase as an opportunity to make money on ticket sales and merchandise as much as an opportunity to strike gold on a 29-year-old football player who has not played baseball competitively since his junior year of high school.
