Tim Tebow has power!
You’re forgiven if you were skeptical about the former Florida quarterback’s attempt to give baseball a try. No one can doubt Tebow’s determination, but after he made plans to work out for major league scouts in Los Angeles on Tuesday, doubts could be excused.
Well, you can only learn so much from a workout. But the sights below are encouraging. Surprising, even.
Check out Tebow launching a home run in the following clip, courtesy of FOX Sports. Did you expect this?

That’s not all. Read this positive description of the event from Josh Peter of USA TODAY Sports:
Tim Tebow put on a power show for a throng of major league scouts on Tuesday, getting mixed reviews for his physical tools before sending eight balls soaring over the fence in batting practice.
On his sixth pitch of batting practice, the lefty-swinging Tebow sent a shot high over the wall in right center field. Three pitches later, he sent a similar drive higher over the fence into the trees at USC’s Dedeaux Field and then drove a ball over the scoreboard in right field.
It will be fascinating to see what comes of this. At the very least, perhaps Tebow gave scouts something to think about. You must give him credit for that.
This is clear: After today, you can’t doubt his ability to launch a baseball.
