Baseball legends are made in October. Reggie Jackson, Big Papi, Derek Jeter. Yesterday, another October legend was born. Tim Tebow.
In his next step on the stairway to baseball greatness, Tebow made his debut in Arizona Fall League on Monday.
He may have gone 0-3 with a weak, home plate tapping dribbler, but surely it’s only a matter of time before he starts launching tape measure Tebow Bombs into unsuspecting cactuses.
Tebow’s biggest play of the day came when he laid his hand upon a fan who had suffered a seizure, and stayed with him until the paramedics arrived. Some onlookers described it as a “miracle.”

That’s a bit of the stretch, but all kidding aside, Tebow is as authentic as any current professional athlete, whether you align with him ideologically or not.
Our Herd Now prediction index has run the numbers, and predicts Tebow should recover from his hitless Arizona Fall League debut with 8 home runs and 2 miracles in his second game.
OK, apparently we need to fire our entire analytics department.
