Tim Tebow Crushes 2nd Home Run in 3rd Minor-League Game

Tim Tebow Hits Home Run in First Minor League At-Bat

Tim Tebow was at it again on Sunday.

With a 15 miles per hour wind blowing out, Tebow launched a shot and stopped at second base, thinking it was a double.

Tebow has three hits - two of them home runs - in his first three games played.

The former NFL quarterback hit his second home run in the minor leagues - in only three games with the Class A Columbia (S.C.) Fireflies.

The ball barely got over the fence and even Tebow wasn't sure the ball left the yard. Tebow turned on an inside pitch and crushed it over the right-field wall. He went 1-for-3 with two runs and a walk, and is now one shy of Michael Jordan's home run total with Double A-Birmingham in 1994.

At 29-years-old the former NFL football player and Heisman Trophy victor has not played baseball since 2004, during his junior year of high school in Florida.

Tebow seems to be positively impacting Columbia on as well as off the field. He is hitting.250 with five RBI in three games this season.
