Tim Tebow's MLB tryout will be taking place later this month.
Tim Tebow, 29, has reportedly been working on his baseball game for a year-plus as he attempts to pursue a professional career in the sport. The former Florida Gator and NFL quarterback played baseball in high school.
According to multiple reports, Tebow's MLB showcase will be taking place at the end of August.
Tebow's MLB workout is set to take place on Aug. 30 in Los Angeles. It will be closed to the public.
A video of Tebow taking batting practice surfaced earlier this month.
Tebow has some highly-thought of believers.
Former MLB All-Star Gary Sheffield thinks Tebow can definitely play in the MLB.
Tebow would have been an MLB draft pick out of high school if he wasn't so set on playing football.
“He had a strong arm and had a lot of power. If he would have been there his senior year he definitely would have had a good chance to be drafted,” said Red Sox Florida scout Stephen Hargett, who worked with the Angels. “He had leverage to his swing. He had some natural loft. He had some good power. He was a good athlete. He had had enough arm for that position. He was a left-handed hitter with strength and some size.
“He stood out. Right when you walked up to the field, he passed the body test. He was bigger and stronger than everybody. I think of how big he is, with an average junior or senior in high school being 5-foot-10, 160 pounds. This guy is 6-foot-4, 200 pounds. ‘It was just easy for him. You thought, if this guy dedicated everything to baseball like he did to football how good could he be?”
Tebow has been training out on the West Coast with former MLB catcher Chad Moeller.
