Tim Tebow jacked the first walk-off home run of his pro baseball career with a 2-run shot in the bottom of the 7th to complete a 4-0 comeback and sweep the doubleheader against the Daytona Tortugas (The teams played seven innings because it was the second game of a doubleheader). Tebow’s blast came on the first pitch of the at bat.
His teammates met him at home plate to celebrate with the former Heisman winner. Tebow struggled in low A ball, but has tearing the cover off the ball at a .320 clip since his call up to high A at Port Saint Lucie.
Tebow should be hitting walk-offs at CitiField for the Mets before the season is out. What the hell do they have to lose?
