While I don’t necessarily look at Tim Tebow as a ‘PR stunt’, but that he’s going to be at spring training does just seem weird.
Tim Tebow will be back at the New York Mets major league camp in Port St. Lucie, Florida, in February.
The Mets’ most famous minor leaguer returns for this third season with the team.
Last year, the Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL quarterback hit .273 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 84 Double-A games before a broken hand ended his season in July.
Because he is not on the 40-man roster, Tebow needed an invite to big league camp, which opens Feb. 16. He was with the Mets at big league camp last season as well and drew big crowds everywhere he went.
His stats show that he’s earned a shot to play in Triple-A and with his tremendous work ethic, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see him the big leagues one day very soon.
