It looks like Tim Tebow’s major league baseball dreams are very much alive.
On Friday, the New York Mets announced that Tebow would be 1 of 9 minor league players joining the Mets spring training team.
We’ve invited nine players to major league #SpringTraining including: Peter Alonso, P.J. Conlon, Kevin Kaczmarski, Patrick Mazeika, Drew Smith, Corey Taylor, Tim Tebow, David Thompson and Adonis Uceta. #Mets

Tebow spent last year in the Mets minor league system playing A-ball for the Mets. The former Florida quarterback hit 8 home runs and had 52 RBI while hitting .226.
When he wasn’t playing baseball this fall, he was broadcasting for ESPN, serving as an analyst for the SEC Network.
Tebow was a Heisman Trophy winner and 2-time national champion at Florida. The former Florida quarterback was taken in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos. Tebow played for the Broncos, Jets, Patriots and Eagles in his short career, though he did lead the Broncocs to playoffs and lead them to an upset win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Mets first Spring Training game is set for Feb. 23.
