  • Tebow promoted within Mets organization

New York Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson announced Tebow will play his final game Sunday as a Columbia Fireflies outfielder.

Tebow, 29, will play next for the St. Lucie Mets, which means he'll spend a full week in the Tampa Bay area in August, with games at the Tampa Yankees on Aug. 10-13 and at the Clearwater Threshers on Aug. 14-17. "His contributions, both on the field and in our community, have made a tremendous impact on our team, the City of Columbia and the entire South Atlantic League".

The Fireflies cut the deficit to 3-2 in the bottom of the seventh when Tim Tebow hit a sacrifice fly, scoring Jabs as part of a two-run inning.

Tebow, a former Heisman Trophy victor and NFL quarterback who retired from football to pursue a baseball career last summer, signed with the Mets in September.

Tim Tebow has earned himself a promotion, making his way to the advanced Class A, St. Lucie Mets.

That's baseball, Tebow said.

Tebow's first pro baseball stop had a storybook start with a home run in his first at-bat. "You'll get so many questions about the bus rides and everything..."

Tebow said he heard "a little" about all the jokes by the RiverDogs during the Fireflies' visit last weekend that drew the ire of some fans and Mets' brass as mocking his Christian faith. What am I doing with them?
