New York Mets Invite Tim Tebow to Major League Spring Training
20 January, 2018, 08:11 | Author: John Swanson
For a normal minor league prospect, those numbers perhaps would be cause for concern, but Tebow obviously isn't a normal minor league prospect, given that he's a 30-year-old former Heisman Trophy victor and NFL quarterback who hadn't played competitive baseball since he was in high school. It was his first attempt to play competitive baseball since his junior year of high school, the spring of 2004. That's not to say they're planning on taking the same approach in 2018; Tebow will undoubtedly get his cup of coffee in the majors at some point, but for now, a Grapefruit League tryout is likely as close as he'll ever get to playing with the team's big league roster on an everyday basis. His power and athleticism impressed scouts and eventually led to him signing with the Mets that September.
He last played with the St. Lucie Mets of the Florida State League at the single-A level.

"In looking back, there's a lot of ups and downs, a lot of learning moments", Tebow said then. "Almost every day there's something that I've never been through before that I'm learning". Among them are former Fireflies P.J. Conlon, Kevin Kaczmarski, Patrick Mazeika, Adonis Uceta, and David Thompson.
