Tim Tebow Homered On 1st Pitch He Saw In Double-A

Watch Tim Tebow homer on first pitch in Double-A

Tebow turned the first pitch he saw on the Double-A level into a line-drive, three-run homer to cap the scoring in a five-run bottom of the first.

Last season, the former National Football League quarterback homered to the opposite field in his first plate appearance for the Columbia Fireflies.

Tebow launched a pitch from Portland pitcher Teddy Stankiewicz over the right-center field wall for a three-run homer.

The Sea Dogs opened the season in Binghamton with a game against Tebow's Rumble Ponies.

"He comes in, gets his swings in early".

"I like it. Tebow's a great guy", Pochkar said. He's a hard worker.

Tebow also homered in his first regular-season professional at-bat last season.

Tebow started in left field against Portland and batted seventh. Any time you have support and people cheering for you, and just our entire team, it feels really good. He hit a combined.226 with eight homers and 52 RBIs in 126 games. He went 1-18 with 11 strikeouts with the big league team during spring training. Alderson said the experiment wouldn't last forever, but he remained optimistic because Tebow had made "meaningful progress". "I think he deserves it".

"He works very hard at his craft, and his passion and work ethic rub off on other players", he said. Next inning when we ran into each other in the dugout I was like, I told him "That's pretty impressive". He's a 30-year-old playing Double-A for the first time.
