Tim Tebow remains hitless in the Arizona Fall League.
Tim Tebow, the New York Mets’ 29-year-old former quarterback turned outfield prospect, is currently playing in the Arizona Fall League. It’s not going too well. Tebow is 0 for 12 with five strikeouts through four games.
He almost got his first hit on Monday night, though. Almost!

You’ll get one, Tim.
Here’s a further description of Tebow’s AFL time so far, from ESPN’s Adam Rubin:
Tim Tebow remains hitless through four games in the Arizona Fall League. After a weekend away with college-football-broadcasting responsibilities, Tebow rejoined Scottsdale and went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts on Monday against Mesa. He is now 0-for-12 with five strikeouts in the AFL, which boasts many of MLB’s top upper-level prospects. Of the balls put in play, Tebow has sent three grounders to second base, three grounders to first base and hit a squibber in front of the plate.
Baseball is hard.
