This is awesome!
Despite the efforts of the mainstream media, liberals simply cannot keep a good Christian down.
Tim Tebow gets a major win. The NFL quarterback turned minor league baseball outfielder has been promoted after exceeding expectations in his first few months (via The New York Post).
Tim Tebow was widely successful as a professional quarterback. However, he had difficulty finding a team willing to field him due to his sincere Christian beliefs.
The Christian quarterback was the first college sophomore to win a Heisman trophy, which he did in 2007 while playing for the University of Florida.
The Gator went on to have a successful rookie season. He gained national attention in his first few years after turning around the losing Denver Broncos.
In 2011, Tebow led the Broncos to their first playoff victory since 2005, beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime. Despite his success on the field, Tebow’s football career fell into decline.
The quarterback was traded from team to team never finding a permanent home and never starting another game. Tebow became the first player under 30 to win a playoff game and never start again.
In 2016, Tebow refused to let his athleticism go to waste, and he made the transition to professional baseball. The former football player called in dozens of MLB scouts to watch his open tryout.
The New York Mets were impressed by Tebow’s performance and signed him to a contract. He started his baseball career in the Mets’ instructional league hitting a home run in his first ever at-bat. By the beginning of the 2017 season, Tebow was asked to join the Columbia Fireflies – a Low-A minor team.
Tebow did well in his first season in a proper baseball league. He has been asked to move to the High-A St. Lucie Mets. The former quarterback did not have the greatest record in the league, but he impressed coaches due to his solid performance despite a lack of experience and Tebow’s willingness to work hard.
“His last two or three weeks trended pretty well and given all the other circumstances, age and so forth, we felt this was the right time to promote him,” explained Mets’ general manager Sandy Alderson.
Tebow proves one can attain any accomplishment with dedication and a solid work ethic. Despite being penalized because of his Christian faith, Tebow is a rising star in the baseball world.
