After the football thing didn’t work out like he’d hoped, Tim Tebow is trying his hand at baseball. The Heisman Trophy winner and 2-time BCS National Champion, who signed with the Mets last September, will play for their minor-league affiliate Columbia Fireflies.
“Tim Tebow will bring major excitement and national attention to the Fireflies and city of Columbia,” said Fireflies President John Katz. “Baseball fans, sports fans and Tim Tebow fans will likely come from around the southeast to see him play. We expect this to add to the energy at Spirit Communications Park and around downtown Columbia, especially during our opening weekend (April 6-9).”
The Tebow Show will be headed to the Metro the first week in April after the Mets finish spring training.
