He’s done it again.
Tim Tebow hit his eighth home run of the season on Saturday evening for the Class A St. Lucie Mets. It’s his fifth with the St. Lucie Mets. He also blasted three homers with the Columbia Fireflies before being promoted on June 25.

The former Heisman Trophy winner has been on a tear since the promotion and entered the weekend hitting .303 with 17 RBI in 30 games.
His promotion to the St. Lucie Mets was controversial after a rough start with the Fireflies. He hit just .220 in 64 games before getting the nod to move up a level.
Tebow’s opposite-field blast put the Mets up 10-3 in the 7th inning against the Charlotte Stone Crabs.
