If hope springs eternal, then the hope for Tim Tebow to make it in Major League Baseball will have to wait until after this spring.
Tebow, owner of a .194 batting average, did not find himself among the thirteen players invited to spring training with the Mets. According to the New York Daily News, “Back in November, [Mets general manager Sandy] Alderson laughed when asked about the extremely remote possibility, saying, “I don’t want to get into it right now. The guy is going through a warp-speed development process. Who knows what’s going to happen in the end.”
The end for Tebow does not necessarily have to come now, and he can still go to any of the minor league camps the Mets affiliates have open. Though, at the age of 29, not getting an invite to the big league camp this time around is a big deal.
