During spring training with the Mets, Tim Tebow went just 1-18 with 11 K. But, in his season opener in the minor leagues for Double-A Binghamton, Tebow smashed a three-run home run on the first pitch he saw.
Tebow, 30, will hope this kickstarts his 2018 season and helps him continue his climb towards the majors.
This is nothing new for Tebow: he hit a home run in his first at-bat with Class A Columbia last year.
Tebow started his season last year with the Single-A Columbia before being promoted to St. Lucie on June 26. In 126 games last season, Tebow hit .226 with eight home runs and 52 RBI. His batting average climbed from .220 during his stint with Columbia to .231 when he played for St. Lucie.
