It’s officially Tebow Time in baseball.
The New York Mets have signed Tim Tebow to a minor-league contract, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.
Tebow will play in the Instructional League or Arizona Fall League, according to Schefter. He reported earlier this week that the Atlanta Braves also had interest in signing Tebow.
The former Florida and NFL quarterback worked out for the Mets and other MLB teams on Aug. 30, weeks after announcing he was pursuing a professional baseball career.
The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner has not played the sport since high school.
