What ESPN's Tim Tebow Announcement Means For His Baseball Career

Here's what today's announcement from ESPN means for his baseball career.

ESPN announced some big Tim Tebow news today.

The Worldwide Leader announced that it has signed the former college football star to a multi-year extension. Tebow, 29, will continue to serve as a college football analyst on SEC Network’s pre-game show SEC Nation.

“Over the last three years ESPN and the SEC Nation crew have become like family,” Tebow said. “I love the passion that SEC fans bring to our set every Saturday morning and I look forward to continuing to share my own love of the game with fans on ESPN and SEC Network.”

What does this mean for Tebow's baseball career?

Nothing.

ESPN is fully aware that Tebow is committed to his pursuit as a professional baseball player and this contract extension won't prevent him from playing.

It's actually been in the works since last fall, so it's not like Tebow has had a change of heart and has decided to pursue broadcasting and give up baseball.

Tebow is currently hitting .242 with 2 HR and 9 RBI in 26 games with the Columbia Fireflies.
