Tim Tebow Magic Continues With A Walk-Off Homerun

In fact, if Tebow keeps hitting the way he is now, he'll likely get promoted to Double-A at some point even before September.

Tim Tebow has continued to silence his critics by performing at a high level in advanced-Class A ball with the New York Mets, but that does not mean he is anywhere near being ready for the big leagues.

Rumors of Tebow's inevitable call-up began to swirl after the former Heisman Trophy victor launched a walk-off solo home run on Thursday night.

Tebow is now hitting.327 for St. Lucie in 49 at bats.

At Class-A Columbia, Tebow slashed.220/.311/.336 while connecting with three long balls and driving in 23 runs across 244 trips to the plate.

As I said at the time, Tebow is 29 years old.

Although he's been back in baseball for almost a year now, the former Nease High School star admitted it's been a while since he's belted a walk-off shot.

The Mets (40-48) play the final game of the series against the Tortugas on Friday at 6:30 p.m. from First Data Field.

"In high school, junior year", laughed Tebow. "That felt pretty good, but this one was special".

Later, Tebow talked about his secret for going oppo. "When you stay behind it, it goes the other way", he said.

However, that offseason, Denver traded Tebow to the New York Jets, and his National Football League career came to a screeching halt. It was his third homer since joining St. Lucie.

He's on an 11 game hit streak now, and honestly at this point, just call the man up to the majors.

This is baseball, anything can happen.
