So, he closed his eyes, swung real hard, and put one over the fence.
The other at bats were more realistic, three Ks and a weak groundout.
Yet, he gets headlines on ESPN and everywhere else, and that is his job.
For a franchise that is supposed to be close to championship level, we should be above those kinds of hucksterish moves..

didn't read the whole article...but found it funny that mr holy-er than than thow got his homerun off of the #666 draft pick:
maybe next time that Tebow faces off against him, they will play this as an entrance song:
Tim Tebow's Home Run Came Off a Pitcher Who Was Drafted No. 666 Overall

The Mets are considering giving Tim Tebow a promotion to a higher level within the minors. according to Mike Puma of the New York Post.
However such a jump is not likely to happen until after the All-Star game in midseason.
Tebow has been on a surge recently, owning a .849 OPS over his last 16 games.
Overall, the former Heisman Trophy winner has a .250/ .330/ .370 batting line to go with two HR and 11 RBI in 28 games with the Single-A Columbia Fireflies.

can't see merchandising if he's always wearing the same jersey
Those stats for a someone 10 years the elder of the kids he's playing with would never get anyone not named Tebow promoted. .220/.311/.336. His only saving graces are 100 point bump on his OBP (which shows they are somewhat pitching around him) and 14 doubles (which equated to 30 on the season).

It is merchandising and a new jersey. There are probably some Florida Gator fans in the PSL vicinity who will buy a ticket or two and maybe spring for the jersey.
Tebow wanted a chance to play pro baseball and obviously he'll never play the big stage. Baseball is entertainment, so the Mets are giving the fans a player they will come out to see.
