Mets minor-league OF Tim Tebow spent time with a World War II veteran at a special needs shelter in Florida following Hurricane Irma.
Though everyone in the shelter was affected by the hurricane's devastation, this WWII veteran shocked Tebow with his kind nature and harmonica playing.
Tebow had just finished his first full season in the Mets' farm system. He only hit .231 with five homers and 21 RBI, but his impact on attendance was tremendous. Many came out to see the Single-A St. Lucie Mets whether the games were home or away.
"For most road stops, having Tebow come to town is also worth a doubling in attendance compared to a standard game," ESPN.com's Darren Rovell noted. "At its extreme, it's even more."
St. Lucie broke its season record for total home attendance this year because of Tebow, and with Low-A Columbia, attendance rose almost 40 percent.
Tebow says he plans to return to the Mets next season, but is not sure what he wants to do beyond that.
