Watch: Tim Tebow Homers During First Day With High-A St. Lucie Mets

Tim Tebow has truly remarkable timing during his minor league baseball career.

The former Florida superstar quarterback hasn't been a world-beater in the minors, but he played well enough to earn a promotion to High-A St. Lucie after starting the year with the Columbia Fireflies, and he does have some pop in his bat.

Tebow homered on the first pitch of his professional career during the Arizona Fall League.

He homered in his first at-bat with the Fireflies back in April.

Tonight, in his first day at St. Lucie, he went deep once again.

It was Tebow's second hit of the day, after he singled in the first game of today's doubleheader.

Video of the home run is available, courtesy of First Coast News' Alyssa Lang, CBS-12's John Evenson, and Twitter user Jason Kotlewski.

The best part of this home run—and it is a legit shot—is Tebow's hustle out of the box. He would have easily run down the Met in front of him on the base paths, had he not slowed down.

Tebowmania isn't going anywhere, folks. With the way the big club is going, and the state of Mets' ownership, I half expect him to be a September call-up at this point.
