It just seems God is going to keep using Tim Tebow in exciting and fun new ways.
Most people mocked his plan to play professional baseball and wrote it off as a publicity stunt. Then, he proceeded to grab headlines for all the right reasons.
He smacked a home run in his very first plate appearance.
He even prayed over a fan who had been experiencing some health issues, and according to witnesses the fan almost immediately leapt up.
In 64 games for the New York Mets low-A minor league team, Tebow hit .220 during the span. That’s low, but not embarrassingly low for a guy who’s been out of the sport since high school and is now approaching 30 years old.
He showed signs of promise, so he’s been promoted. Since that promotion, he’s hitting a very solid .306 and apparently getting more and more confidence by the day.
“I think I’m more comfortable seeing more pitches,” he told local news reporters. His coaches have reportedly said he’s made a “big jump” from spring training to today.
And it’s showed.
It’s a dangerous place to be as an athlete. You don’t want to think about that. I’ve got to think about the here, I’ve got to think about the now, I’ve got to think about what I’m doing. …This journey isn’t just about the destination. It’s about every single day. It’s about the competition against the pitcher. It’s about the camaraderie with my teammates. It’s about enjoying every moment. Wherever it ends, I’m going to have fun.
