Mets minor-league OF and former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow had two hits Wednesday against the Marlins, raising his Grapefruit League average to .214 during 14 at bats.
Tebow also made a leaping catch in right field, drawing praise from Marlins manager Don Mattingly.
"I feel like I'm improving," Tebow said, his right forearm bloodied from scraping the warning track. "I feel like I'm getting better every day, getting more and more comfortable, and also really enjoying it at the same time."
With players soon returning from the World Baseball Classic, and with games beginning in minor-league camp, Mets manager Terry Collins said Wednesday was most likely Tebow's final Grapefruit League game.
