Call him up! Tim Tebow blasts second minor-league home run

Posted April 13, 2017

Tim Tebow with his second homerun of the season!

The New York Mets' Class A team posted video of the line-drive, three-run shot to right field, which fueled a 6-0 victory.

He's no longer on pace for 140 home runs, but Tim Tebow hit his second in three games Sunday at Spirit Communications Park in Columbia, S.C.

At 29-years-old the former NFL football player and Heisman Trophy victor has not played baseball since 2004, during his junior year of high school in Florida. His goal is to make it to the majors, but with only a few clutch plays to his name, can he do it? After blasting the ball during his first appearance at the plate, the ex-NFL star followed it up with a second home run during his third game!

It's also worth pointing out that Tebow now has just one less home run than Michael Jordan, who left basketball to pursue baseball.

Tebow seems to be positively impacting Columbia on as well as off the field.

Tebow, a first round pick of the Broncos in 2010, is batting.250 (three for 12) with a walk.
