When former NFL player Tim Tebow decided he was going to hold a tryout for all 30 MLB teams in an attempt to make it playing pro baseball, there were many different opinions, many of which were in the negative department of things. Even though all 30 teams were invited, only around 20 reported showed up. The Detroit Tigers were one of the teams that sent a scout out to overlook the workout to how Tebow looked on the baseball field.
It’s a sport that isn’t brand new to Tebow. He played baseball in high school while attending Allen D. Nease High School in Ponte Vedra, Florida. His junior year, he hit .494 and was a big part of why Nease made it all the way to the final four in the Florida State playoffs that season. Since then, it’s been more football than baseball.
After the workout took place, the speculation was at an all-time high as to which team was possibly going to take a chance on him.
Well… As of this morning, all of our questions regarding that have been answered. It was announced that the New York Mets signed Tebow to a minor league deal and will have him play in their Instructional League.

It’ll be interesting to see how this pans out in the near future and good luck to Tebow on this new sports chapter in his life.
