It didn't take long for Tim Tebow to make waves at the New York Mets instructional league game on Wednesday as he rocketed the first pitch he saw over the center field wall. The 29-year old former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL quarterback is attempting to an improbable run to the big leagues after his opportunities in pro football dried up. Tebow will have a long journey ahead of him in the minors, but his arrival with the Amazin's is already drawing nationwide attention and interest. Whether the Tebow signing is more of a public relations stunt, than it is a baseball move is highly debatable, but it's hard to argue that the Florida native has some natural-born talent and passion for the game. Tebow will still serve as a broadcaster for the SEC Network, while making his run to the major leagues, so this won't be the last we see or hear from one of America's most polarizing athletes.
