Tim Tebow hits his first walk-off home run since high school

Tim Tebow hits his first walk-off home run since high school

He's now playing outfield for the New York Mets' High-A affiliate, located in St. Lucie, Florida.

In 14 games with his new team Tebow has 14 hits - two of which were doubles, two were home runs - and he has driven in nine runs. Not much else you can ask for from a video that promises those things then delivers.

Tebow has hit safely in 11 straight games and is batting.327 with 10 RBIs with St. Lucie. He knows his baseball and he understands both game strategy and the mechanics of hitting.

The Mets are seven games below.500 and sitting in fourth place (out of five) in the National League East standings.

As I said at the time, Tebow is 29 years old.

New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson is shooting down any hopes fans might have of seeing Tim Tebow in Major League Baseball when rosters expand in September.

Indian premier calls for action against cow vigilantism
Modi also thanked everyone for the implementation of the GST, calling it a "shining example of co-operative federalism". This is the second time that the Prime Minister has taken a tough stand on cow vigilantism.

The home run was his sixth of his minor league stint and the first walk-off of his career.

"[The high school homer] was for the district championship", Tebow told the press. "I think it's great for him to believe in his dream and try to follow it, try to get to the big leagues".

"In high school, junior year", laughed Tebow. "That felt pretty good, but this one was special", Tebow said.

The Tortugas and Mets wrap up the three-game set at 6:30 p.m. on Friday.

This is baseball, anything can happen.
