Tim Tebow Held Hitless In Arizona Fall League Debut

Tim Tebow's debut in the Arizona Fall League didn't go so well.

Tim Tebow made his Arizona Fall League debut on Tuesday and it didn't go as well as he probably hoped for. He certainly didn't create the same fireworks he did in his first instructional league game back on Sept. 28 when he hit the first pitch he saw over the left-field wall.

ESPN's Adam Rubin was on the scene in Glendale, Ariz. and reported that the former Heisman Trophy winner went 0-3 at the dish. He did not strikeout, however, as he grounded out twice and squibbed a pitch just in front of the plate.

The former NFL quarterback played left field for five innings where he caught a fly ball and also crashed into the wall while chasing a line drive. USA Today posted a photo of Tebow's big defensive play in Instagram.

The fall league will run for the next six weeks and the pitching that Tebow will be facing isn't mediocre, as the majority of the pitchers have played at the Double-A level.

Tebow signed a contract with the New York Mets back on Sept. 8.
