Having been shunned by the NFL, Tim Tebow is apparently going to try to make a go of it in professional baseball.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the former Denver Broncos quarterback has been training to play baseball over the past year in Arizona and Los Angeles. He’s invited all 30 major league clubs to a workout he’s holding later this month.
Tebow, 29, last played baseball regularly in high school, where he was All-State in Florida. He even hit .494 in his junior year.
Tebow’s agent Jimmy Sexton told Schefter that he believes all of the traits which propelled Tebow to a Heisman Trophy in college will aid Tebow in his quest for the majors.
“Tim’s athletic ability, his work ethic, his leadership and his competitiveness were evident in football and will show in baseball,” Sexton said. “Knowing Tim’s passion and desire, we won’t be surprised by anything he accomplishes.”
Here’s hoping he makes it to the big leagues so we can all start Tebowing again.
