The guy is a very impressive physical/athletic specimen, but the skill and timing required to hit a ball coming at you at 97 miles per hour is not something you can just put aside for more than a decade and then pick up again because you’re big and strong. That’s what the sports fan in me says. I very much appreciate Tebow’s commitment to his faith and his willingness to speak of...
