Will Tim Tebow be better than Michael Jordan?

Tebow plays for the Mets' Double-A affiliate Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

After posting a less-than-stellar.656 OPS across two levels of Single-A ball in 2017, the Mets made a surprise announcement this spring: Tebow was earning a promotion with a jump to Double-A. A team source told the News this spring that Tebow's arrival in Queens could come as soon as this September, when Major League Baseball rosters expand.

Tim Tebow's first at-bat, and you can't script this any better. Tebow batted seventh in the order, and his debut homer came in the first inning with two men on base.

The only option was to press "Ask Me", but that sent users back to another dialogue box asking them to log in once again. Around three hours later, Tinder confirmed the issue had been resolved.

Binghamton hitting coach Val Pascucci, Tebow's manager a year ago in the Instructional League, said he's seen steady improvement. "He's always looking to get better", he said.

Early in spring training, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said he thought Tebow had the talent to make it to the big leagues.

"He's another ballplayer. I understand all the excitement because it's Tim Tebow", Wilpon said. I think that was something our team really fed off today, was just the energy. Next inning when we ran into each other in the dugout I was like, I told him "That's pretty impressive".
