Tim Tebow Comforts, Prays for Man Suffering Postgame Seizure

Tim Tebow didn’t start his Arizona Fall League’s first game with a home run as he did in the New York Mets instructional league. He did finish it by becoming a big hit for one fan.

Tebow went 0-for-3 and ran face first into a wall in his first action with the Scottsdale Scorpions. Then he comforted a fan who fell into a seizure until paramedics arrived.

Call it a Tim Tebow cycle.

“I just remember just being very disoriented,” Brandon Berry explained he Associated Press. “Then I saw Tim.”

Berry was one of 912 fans, about triple the norm for an AFL game, who watched Tebow’s league debut in near 100-degree heat. He suffered a seizure as the former Heisman Trophy-winner signed autographs. According to the AP, Tebow prayed for the 30-year-old and put his hand on his leg. The afflicted man reportedly told the former Florida Gators quarterback that he rooted for Georgia.

The Scorpions defeated the Glendale Desert Dogs 9-6. Tebow’s team takes on the Salt River Rafters Wednesday night.

The Scorpions, which Michael Jordan played for in the 1990s when he gave baseball a try, see 30 games on the schedule. Tebow skips ones that conflict with his college football commentating duties for ABC/ESPN.
