Here’s how Tim Tebow betters Michael Jordan

Tim Tebow came to play during his first game with the St. Lucie Mets.                                    
Hitting a two-run homer into left-center field during the second inning, Tebow showed he was more than able to handle high Single-A baseball.                                                                    
As reported by TCPalm.com, Tebow’s powerful play came off a 92 mph fastball.  Despite his the outstanding inaugural showing, the St. Lucie Mets still succumbed to the Palm Beach Cardinals.                                                                                                                             
Back in April with his previous team,  Tebow hit a home run in his first game with the Columbia Fireflies.

“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.
