Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow made his minor league debut Thursday, and in Tim Tebow fashion, he started his career off with a bang.
In his first official at-bat for the Class A Columbia Fireflies, the 29-year-old swatted one just over the fence for a two-run home run.
The ball bounced back onto the field, making Tebow believe he just had a ground-rule double.
“I thought I had a double, and the guy goes, ‘Keep going,'” Tebow said of the homer. “I was, ‘All right. I’ll take it.’ It felt good, though.”
