Tim Tebow Hits 2nd Home Run of the Season for Columbia Fireflies

Tim Tebow Hits 2nd Home Run of the Season for Columbia Fireflies

Tim Tebow has come a long way from his One-Man Baseball Fantasy Camp. In three games he's hitting.231 and leads the Columbia Fireflies with two home runs.

The Fireflies, part of the Class A South Atlantic League, are 4-0 during the first week of the 2017 season. Tebow was known for the clutch, last second, overtime throw to win the game during his football career. Tebow turned on an inside pitch and crushed it over the right-field wall.

For the second time this week, Tebow cranked out a home run. During his second game, he went 1 for 5. He's 3-for-13 this year with five strikeouts.

"The progress has been absolutely impressive, to be honest with you", Jose Leger, the manager of the Columbia Fireflies, told The State.

Plenty of mocked Tebow for taking a shot at professional baseball, but he hasn't exactly fallen flat on his face out there.

With play like that, Tebow may find himself in the big league's soon enough. Even if Tim doesn't pass them, he's on his way to breaking a significant record.
