Tim Tebow crushed his first home run with Class A Advanced St. Lucie in the nightcap of a doubleheader on Wednesday night.
Playing in his second game with the Mets affiliate after a promotion from Low-A Columbia, Tebow crushed a homer to center off Cardinals prospect Junior Fernandez. The right-hander is the Cardinals' 10th-ranked farmhand, according to MLB.com.
Tebow, who followed it with a single in his second at-bat, went 1-for-2 with a walk during the first game of St. Lucie's doubleheader against Palm Beach.
The 29-year-old Tebow amassed a .220/.311/.336 slash line with three homers and 23 RBIs in 64 games with Columbia before his promotion.
