Tim Tebow to be assigned to Columbia Fireflies, Mets' low-A affiliate

Tim Tebow strikes out, gets plunked in Mets debut

The former NFL quarterback, Heisman Trophy victor and current college football analyst has improved enough, according to the team, that he belongs in the South-Atlantic League with the Fireflies.

The Fireflies are play in the South Atlantic League and are located in SC.

Longtime New York Mets general manger Sandy Alderson told Newsday that Tebow has improved pretty dramatically. "And based on what he's done in spring training, and his whole body of work since last fall, we feel comfortable with him going to Columbia".

According to Baseball Reference, Tebow hit.173 in 110 at-bats during the Mets' fall league in 2016, with 33 strikeouts and a.209 slugging percentage.

After his performance in spring training, where can we expect to see Tebow?

Well let's just say that Sheeran must be among the rare celebs who stay in news for dopplegangers. She stated that. "Everyone comments saying how she's a mini Ed, and I call her baby Sheeran".

"Tebow's story is so compelling - from the BCS National Championships and the NFL playoffs to reinventing himself as a professional baseball player", Fireflies president John Katz said in a statement. "But what he's done in spring training has convinced us that this is where he should go". Maintaining that signing Tebow was not a farce, publicity stunt, or money grab, Alderson noted, "We have lots of players in our organization who are just that: organizational players".

"That's such a bogus argument", Alderson said. The AFL annually features some of the best prospects in Minor League Baseball, primarily consisting of Double-A and Triple-A level players.

"The fact that he's starting at Columbia, he's really not taking anybody's spot".

Following a three-year National Football League career that saw him play for the Denver Broncos and Jets, Tebow decided last year to try his hand at baseball, a sport he excelled at in high school.

The Fireflies open the season at home on April 6 against Augusta (Ga.), beginning a seven-game homestand.
