Former college football star and current analyst Tim Tebow’s baseball career was put on hold earlier this year thanks to the pandemic.
However, according to the latest comments from Mets president Sandy Alderson, it’s not over just yet. Alderson addressed Tebow’s potential return to the Mets in an interview with the New York Post.
During the interview, Alderson said Tebow is “anxious to come back” and play for the Mets organization. Later in the interview, Alderson said the former football star is “committed to coming back” to baseball this year.
Here’s more from the New York Post:
“So I talked to Tim Saturday, in between Florida football and some other SEC [broadcasting] obligations,” Alderson said. “He’s anxious to come back. And I told Tim, ‘Look, why would you want to end your quest based on a COVID-related reason? You didn’t get a chance to perform this year.’ He was hurt a little bit the previous year. So I think Tim is committed to coming back. And I think we’re committed to giving him an opportunity to do that and we’ll see where it goes.”
Tebow has played three seasons in the Mets minor league farm system.
Although he has found much success, the former football star was improving last season before an injury knocked him out for the rest of the year.
Can he finally break through in his next stint with the Mets?
