If you don’t know by now, Tim Tebow hit a home run in his first minor league at-bat for the New York Mets Class-A affiliate Columbia Fireflies. Also, if you don’t know that by now then you live under a rock because all the media talks about is Tim Tebow. Anyway, I am like almost everyone else who watches sports and has a brain in that I think Tim Tebow’s little professional baseball stunt is dumb. I also think it’s kind of disrespectful to all the guys out there who’ve been busting their butt and dedicating their lives to the sport who aren’t getting the chance that he is because of his name. But, I will say that I’m going to start believing in Tim Tebow’s powers. I’m not dumb, I just don’t want to look back one day when he’s performing miracles and say I doubted him.

So naturally, when I heard that Tim Tebow dropped a homer on everyone’s heads in his first minor league at-bat, I was intrigued. I went to look at the tape and it was even more interesting than I could have imagined. This homer was no cheapy down the left field line that wrapped around a foul pole. This guy went opposite field and put a pretty decent swing on it. The best part about the whole video though was that no one in the whole stadium could believe what happened, not even Tebow himself. He stopped at second base because he was so shocked.

Now I’m not saying that a big, athletic dude with some baseball playing experience can’t run into a pitch and take it out of the park once in a blue moon, but it’s still pretty amazing. If Tebow keeps praying and staying pure he may be able to heal his teammates and will balls into his glove for outs. Also, not for nothing but apparently the guy he hit his home run off of was drafted 666th in 2015 and Tebow’s strength and conditioning coach Tanner MIRACLE, predicted that Tim would hit on out of the park to left in his first AB. If that stuff doesn’t get you a little bit interested in what’s going on here then I don’t know what will.

So, I’m not saying that this isn’t a fluke home run but I kind of am saying that. You may question me now, but when Tebow is leading the New York Mets to the World Series and then announcing himself as some type of angel or something don’t tell me I didn’t warn you. Tebowmania is back and it only took about six years, a couple teams, a broadcasting job and another sport to get him here.
