Earlier in the day on Tuesday, news broke that former Heisman trophy winner Tim Tebow is pursuing a comeback.
But just not in the NFL.
Tebow’s football career didn’t last long after his electrifying playoff run with the Broncos in 2011. After that, he bounced around from team to team.
Now an analyst with ESPN, Tebow is going to try to make it work with a bat, glove, and baseball.
Apparently, he might have some skills…
At age 29, Tebow’s been out of baseball for 11 years since his stud high school years.
From ESPN’s Adam Schefter
Tebow was an All-State baseball player in Florida and hit .494 as a junior, helping Nease High School reach the final four of the Florida state playoffs.
Judge for yourself whether or not you think Tebow can hit with the pros:
Reportedly, all 30 MLB teams will be in attendance for Tebow’s workout next month. But if he gets signed, you’d have to imagine he would start in the minor leagues.
We’ll wait and see if Tebow’s pro baseball career pans out, or if it ends like his football career did. Maybe the broadcast booth is the best place for him right now.
