Major League Baseball may be enjoying its final night of rest during the All-Star break, but Tim Tebow is hard at work dropping bombs.
The former Florida quarterback turned New York Mets minor league farmhand rocked the baseball world on Thursday evening with an opposite-field home run to lead the St. Lucie Mets past the Daytona Tortugas by the score of 5-4.
Have a look at the blast and the celebration that ensued from three different angles:

It was Tebow’s third home run since receiving a promotion from Columbia to St. Lucie within the Mets system. He’s hitting .327 since receiving the call up, and he’s in the midst of an 11-game hitting streak.
If he keeps hitting like this, he may be in line for another step up the minor league ladder before the season in over.
