“I don’t know. I honestly felt good the last few weeks in Columbia and just tried to carry it over and put the bat on the ball and hit it hard,” Tebow said. “I was thankful I could get one out tonight.”
TCPalm.com reports that Tebow’s home run Wednesday gives the former college and NFL quarterback more minor-league homers (four) than basketball Hall of Famer Michael Jordan had (three) in his swing at baseball in the mid-1990s.
The former University of Florida football player must have felt quite at home during his first game with the Florida minor league team. In addition to his homer, Tebow had two singles, going 3 for 5 with a walk, two RBIs and a run scored.
Perhaps comparing Tebow with the untouchable (in basketball) Michael Jordan is not exactly a fair fight, but it looks like Tebow is still one to watch in whatever sport he plays.
