Tim Tebow is making his promotion to the High-A St. Lucie Mets look more than justified.
Tebow, in a shock to many, got the call up after 63 games with the Single-A Columbia Fireflies, in which he batted just. 222 with 69 strikeouts.
But in the second game of St. Lucie’s doubleheader against the Palm Beach Cardinals, Tebow blasted a two-run home run the opposite way in the second inning to put the Mets on the board.
This wasn’t Tebow’s first Advanced-A hit, though. The former NFL quarterback went 1-for-2 with a single in Game 1 of the doubleheader. He also followed his home run in Game 2 with another base knock.
