    Tim Tebow’s goal going forward is simple: Play ball! Professional baseball, to be more specific. The former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL quarterback said Friday that he spends three-to-five days each week training for baseball, getting himself ready for Year 2 of his pro career in the New York Mets organization. “I didn’t take any time off,” he said Friday. Tebow gets the work in around his off-the-field job as a college football analyst for the SEC Network, which takes him to schools throughout the Southeastern Conference from September until January. The TV gig has not dulled Tebow’s desire to...

    Tim Tebow thinks the guys are going to a Halloween party costumed as "Star Wars" characters. But his "Heisman House" buddies are all dressed as Tim Tebow - except Derrick Henry. He's going as a baseball player. Alabama's 2015 Heisman Trophy winner pokes fun at the baseball career of Florida's 2007 Heisman Trophy winner in the latest installment of Toyota's "Heisman House" commercials. (It's really Nissan) In the ad, Henry is dressed in a No. 15 baseball uniform with "Bugs" written on the front. Tebow spent the first half of the 2017 baseball season playing for the Columbia Fireflies of...

    Tebow said there have been 'a lot of learning moments' in his first season as a baseball player Early next week, the 2017 minor-league regular season will come to an end, which means Tim Tebow's first year as a full-time baseball player with the Mets is nearly complete. Tebow, who turned 30 in August, is currently hitting .222/.306/.344 with 23 doubles and eight home runs in 123 games split between two Class A levels. Considering he hadn't play baseball regularly since high school a decade ago, that is pretty impressive. What's next for Tebow now that his season is nearly...

    Tim Tebow and Seth Bosch had never met until July 29 at Charlotte Sports Park, where Tebow, playing minor-league baseball for the St. Lucie Mets, was going against the Charlotte Stone Crabs. Tebow and his team will be in Tampa and Clearwater for eight games beginning Thursday night. But back to that brief encounter on July 29, one that turned into something special, all of it captured on video by Seth's mother, Ileanna. Tebow, 29, was taking practice swings in the on-deck circle, waiting to hit in the top of the seventh inning. Seth, who was 9 at the time...
  • Tim Tebow’s no circus act: He’s a real Mets prospect

    A funny thing happened on the way to the circus: Tim Tebow, it turns out, can play a little. This probably comes as a surprise to you, because it almost certainly comes as a surprise to the Mets. The only people this doesn’t surprise, in truth, are those Tebow acolytes willing to believe he’s capable of just about anything. [cut] What if Tebow really is what these last 28 games and 92 at-bats have hinted at? In the Florida State League, the most advanced level of Class-A ball, he’s hitting .315 after going 3-for-5 against Bradenton Wednesday night, with an...

    Tim Tebow is a big-league hit in the minor leagues. The Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL quarterback has minor league fans around the Single A South Atlantic League flocking to stadiums and jamming ticket lines to see the Columbia Fireflies outfielder and designated-hitter. The Hickory Crawdads sold out four games with the Fireflies, its total of 17,500 for the series surpassing the 15,900 they drew their first eight games. "We had 4,500 people in the stands," Crawdads season ticket holder Christopher Pack said, "and 4,300 were there to see Tim Tebow." People show up in Tebow's NFL jerseys, and...

    COLUMBIA, S.C. — Tim Tebow looks like he’s learning to hit. Could a promotion be next? Tebow tripled — on a headfirst slide — and singled twice, scoring two runs as the Single-A Columbia Fireflies beat the Asheville Tourists 5-0 on Wednesday. It was Tebow’s third multihit game since Friday, as the 29-year-old followed up on his best week in the minors with more consistency at the plate. In his past six games, Tebow is batting .450 (9-for-20). “There are some guys who do really good who get taken away from me halfway through the year,” Fireflies manager Jose Leger...

    Tim Tebow’s home run in his first professional baseball at-bat was an electric moment for many sports fans and media. Not for Shannon Sharpe though. The co-host of The Undisputed on Fox Sports 1 complained Friday that Tebow shouldn’t even be allowed to play baseball. “We’ve got to stop this,” Sharpe demanded. “Here’s a guy who is going to try every sport until he finds something he’s good at. How about he’s not good at anything.”

    The lessons learned by Tebow were across the board in his first major league action in the Mets’ 8-7 spring training win over the Red Sox at First Data Field before a sellout crowd of 6,538. Go ahead, make all the Tebow-doesn’t-belong jokes you want, but say this for the Mets’ grand Tebow experiment and marketing scheme: The hulking Tebow is making baseball fun again. Anything to break the boredom of spring training is OK in my book. Wearing No. 97, Tebow faced major league talent and learned some valuable lessons. This will be a season of learning for Tebow....

    This morning I listened to Dr. David Jeremiah's sermon on John 3:16 on http://www.oneplace.com/. In his sermon, Dr. Jeremiah mentioned the numerous "John 3:16" signs displayed by football fans in the stands. He also mentioned Tim Tebow's writing that verse reference on his eyeblack. Tebow is as identified with "John 3:16" as he is with kneeling in the end zone.

    Pam Tebow, the celebrated mother of football superstar and Christian role model Tim Tebow,will share the story of her decision against an abortion as the guest speaker at the West Coast Walk for Life next month. Tebow will undoubtedly recount the story of her decision not to have an abortion. Tebow and her husband were Christian missionaries in the Philippines in 1985 and they prayed for “Timmy” before she became pregnant. Pam entered into a coma after she contracted amoebic dysentery, an infection of the intestine caused by a parasite found in a contaminated food or drink. The treatment for...

    ...It took a few games, but the inevitable happened: Tim Tebow recorded a hit... ...All in all, Tebow has been very aggressive at the plate. Most of his at-bats have been two- or three-pitch affairs, with only a handful going on for any more length. His eye at the plate is coming along, and he hasn’t really swung at too many pitches that were clearly balls, but his baseball skills are still at a point where when he does get pitches to hit, he has trouble squaring up on them, rolling over more than one fastball right down Broadway. He...

    Miracle?... What’s the bigger surprise here? That the Washington Post wrote a story about a Scottsdale Scorpions game in the Arizona Fall League? Or that the Post actually took somewhat seriously the possibility that a Christian man laid hands on an ailing person and performed some modicum of healing? I don’t think the chances are very good that they run tomorrow’s Salt River Rafters box score, so I guess you’ve got your answer.

Call this mainly a feel-good video to start your day with - a gift from us to you before we return to whatever nonsense Hillary and her media megaphones are trying to shove down our throats today. When the New York Mets signed Tim Tebow to a minor league contract a few weeks ago, the signing was widely derided as a silly publicity stunt - particularly by one especially contemptible sportswriter known to our readership as a vindictive obsessive stalker cockroach. But that’s what Raid is for.
