Tim Tebow scored a home run in his first at-bat as a professional baseball player Wednesday during an instructional league game.
The 29-year-old former NFL quarterback signed with the New York Mets earlier this month despite not having played the sport competitively since high school. Many observers saw the move more as a publicity stunt than a mark of Tebow’s abilities as a baseball player.
The home run may seem impressive at first glance, but some observers suggested its significance should not be overestimated. Tebow finished the day 1-for-6 at bat in the instructional league game.
