Meet the Newest Member of the New York Mets Organization: Tim Tebow

Former NFL quarterback, Heisman Trophy winner and philanthropist Tim Tebow is now a professional baseball player.

Early this morning, the New York Mets announced that they signed Tebow to a minor-league deal, adding that he will be a participant in the MLB’s Instructional League this coming fall. A few weeks ago, Tebow held a showcase for more than two dozen teams after stating his desire to continue his career as a professional athlete in a sport other than football.

There’s no telling when—or if—we’ll actually see Tebow suiting up for the Mets. It’s relatively common for players to spend several years in the farm system before appearing in the big leagues (if they make it there at all).
