Tim Tebow has been back in baseball headlines this week after it was announced he would be joining the New York Mets’ class high-A affiliate in Port St. Lucie, Fla.
The former Florida quarterback has already begun to make good on the promotion, homering in his second game with the club Wednesday night.

Tebow also singled in his debut, the first game of a doubleheader on Wednesday. The hit came in the fifth inning as the Mets were trailing 5-2. He was later erased by a double play. Tebow also walked and struck out in the loss to the Palm Beach Cardinals.
He earned the promotion after hitting .220 with 3 homers in 64 games with the Mets’ low-A affiliate.
