Tim Tebow is on a hot streak, again. The former football star-turned-major league hopeful got off to a really good start in Double-A ball this season with a home run in his first plate appearance.

The former Heisman Trophy winner seems to have a flair for the dramatic as that home run was his third in a first appearance with a new minor league team - he had two last year.

Tebow flamed out after that hot start, and was hitting just .133 though the team's first four games of the season.

That has all changed recently. In the month of June, Tebow has been dominant.

Not bad for the former Heisman Trophy-winner.

In his past five games, the former Florida star is 7-for-15 at the plate, including a home run and three RBI. Tebow is starting to live up to the hype this season.

Will we see him called up to the Mets this year?
