Watch: Tebow Launches Second Minor League Home Run
By: Jack Hammer - TapWires News Service
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.Tim Tebow, Columbia Fireflies, Augusta Greenjackets, Single A Ball, Homerun
