Tim Tebow Needs to Play for 162 Teams

OK, technically, this was dude's second game for the Port St Lucie Mets.

But it was the back end of a doubleheader, so it counts as part of a trend that's forming here.

Tim Tebow isn't bad at making first impressions.

Three games doesn't define a baseball player, but maybe dude learned something in Columbia, as in this is still A ball.

Sit on the heaters. The funky breaking stuff doesn't get good until AA.

Until the rubber meets the road, then, it's clear he's got the first day with a new team sorted.

If the big club needs a merch push when September call-ups arrive, they may have found their bopper. For one game, at least.
