Tim Tebow Cranks First-Ever Double-A Home Run Vs. Sea Dogs

Tim Tebow playing for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies watches his three-run home run in the first inning against the Portland Sea Dogs in a Double-A baseball game Thursday

In his first at bat at the Double-A level Tebow ripped a three-run home run last (Thursday) night to help power the Binghamton Rumble Ponies to a 6-0 victory over the Portland Sea Dogs in the season opener for both teams.

Last April, Tebow homered in his first at-bat with the Class A Columbia Fireflies of the South Atlantic League.

Tebow would finish the game 1-for-4 with the home run and three RBIs. Here's another look at Thursday's homer. He's a hard worker.

After his first Double-A game, I asked Tebow how it felt getting the type of support he did in his first game in Binghamton. He was hampered by a left ankle sprain and had been used exclusively as a designated hitter or pinch hitter. The Rumble Ponies had no such trouble connecting off Portland starter Teddy Stankiewicz.

He mashes a two-run homer to left field.

"He's another ballplayer. I understand all the excitement because it's Tim Tebow", Wilpon said before the game. While his initial stint with the Mets during spring training was met with mixed reviews - many saw his presence and potential call-up as little more than a publicity stunt - if he can keep swinging for the fences, his Major League dream might become a reality. The 30-year-old Tebow is in his second full year in the minor leagues, having split the 2017 season between Low-A Columbia (S.C.) and High-A St. Lucie (Fla.) in the New York Mets' system.

Joe Pochkar, a season-ticket holder from nearby Endwell, called Tebow's arrival a win-win for an area along New York's Southern Tier that's been among the slowest regions of the state to recover from the financial crash a decade ago. I think that was something our team really fed off today, was just the energy. I wish him all the best. The guy knows how to make a good first impression.
