Tim Tebow is incredible.
Maybe we all should have known that the former Florida quarterback would smack a home run in his first at-bat in his minor-league debut with the New York Mets’ Class A Columbia Fireflies on Thursday. How great is Tebow?
He cracked the two-run home run in the bottom of the second inning against Augusta. What a way to begin his time with the Fireflies.
As expected, the internet went wild with the development. Check out a sampling of the reactions below.

Tim Tebow hitting a two-run home run in his first minor league at-bat is proof to not let hate affect the dreams you're chasing.
