Tim Tebow's first professional baseball season was short on production, heavy on hype and an overwhelming success at the minor league box office. And he better start working hard, because the Mets have issued him a very special invitation.
Former Columbia Fireflies outfielder and 2007 Heisman Trophy victor Tim Tebow is headed back to Spring Training. His athleticism is impressive, complete with good speed and raw power, yet he struggles with the finer aspects of playing ball - hence his.656 OPS across Single- and High-A. Over 64 games, he hit.220/.311/.336 with three homers, 24 walks, and 69 strikeouts.
Is Informa overpaying for UBM?
Under Takeover Panel rules, Informa has until 1700 GMT on February 13 to make an offer or walk away for at least six months. They said that Derek Mapp, Informa's chairman, and the blue chip firm's chief executive, Stephen A.
The 30-year-old outfielder was among nine spring training invitees announced by the team Friday. The two clubs he played for in 2017, the Columbia (S.C.) Fireflies and the St. Lucie (Fla.) Mets, set various attendance records during Tebow's tenure with those teams. Tebow, who is definitely not expected to make the Mets' major league roster on opening day, would be one of them. Tebow hit.226 with eight home runs and 52 RBIs in 126 games last season between Class A Columbia in the South Atlantic League and Class A Advanced Port St. Lucie in the Florida State League.
They probably won't cut him too quickly, though.
