If Tim Tebow is ever going to make good on his big league dream, it would behoove him to have a strong season this year. That starts by having a quality spring training.
Earlier today, Tebow blasted his first homer of the spring, a welcome sign for the 32-year-old outfielder. It came in a game against the Detroit Tigers.
The two-run bomb, which sailed over the wall in left center field, was part of a four-run inning for the Mets. New York still lost the game 9-6.
Batting ninth and serving as the DH, Tebow went 1-for-2 with a walk and this home run. Here’s footage of the blast, courtesy of Mets’ fan Jonathan Vasquez.

Tebow is heading into his fourth season with the New York Mets organization. He struggled immensely at Triple-A last year but will get another shot at the level in 2020.
Considering Tebow will be 33 in August, the clock is definitely ticking for him. However, if he gets off to a good start at Triple-A, he could potentially put himself in line for a big league call-up later in the year.
In the meantime, he’ll continue to draw crowds wherever he goes.
