New York Mets outfield prospect Tim Tebow notched his first hit of the spring Friday.
The Heisman winner and former NFL quarterback served as the team’s cleanup hitter as they faced Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer.
Tebow struck out on three pitches against Scherzer in his first at-bat, but later laced a single into the outfield against Nationals prospect Erick Fedde.
