Tim Tebow Hits Home Run on First Pitch as Pro Baseball Player
On the first pitch he saw in his first game as a professional baseball player, Tim Tebow just hit a home run.
The dramatic swing came today during an Instructional League game between the Mets and the Cardinals in Florida.
The former Denver Broncos quarterback, batting lefty, sent a drive over the left-field wall.
Tebow signed a minor-league contract with the Mets earlier this month, hoping to make it as an outfielder.
It's the first time the former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback played baseball since high school.

Tebow, who played in some simulated intra-squad games in recent days, said he was looking forward to getting into an actual game.
"You don’t want to change anything. You don’t want a game day to be any bigger than any other day. Consistency is the key. Just make the next day a little bit better," he said.
