Since the strike a number of years ago I have not been much of a baseball fan.  However, I am a fan of Tim Tebow and root for him both in life and in his sports career.  He was blackballed in the NFL and in my opinion got a raw deal.  But now he has turned his attention to Baseball.  And he is making steady progress.  

In a town more famous for the Masters than for baseball, the former Heisman winner took the Augusta Greenjackets reliever Jose Morel deep for a three-run home run over the rightfield wall in the fifth inning.  The Columbia Fireflies outfielder Tim Tebow hit his second home run in three games on Sunday.

Tebow, a New York Mets prospect, homered in his first at-bat and is currently 3 for 13 (.231) with two home runs, a walk and five strikeouts.  He may not be Hank Aaron and this might be "Single A" ball but for his fans it's still excitin.
