Tim Tebow homers in St. Lucie Mets debut

Former Florida Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback and now New York Mets minor-league baseball player Tim Tebow had a successful debut with the advanced Single-A St. Lucie Mets on Wednesday. Tebow hit a home run to center field in the second game of a doubleheader to kick-start his contribution to a new team. His performance — a 3-for-5 day at the plate with 2 RBI and a walk over the two games — drew the attention of an National League scout, according to the New York Post.
