Tim Tebow gets an invite to Mets' major league spring training


The other NY baseball team announced that the former Heisman Trophy victor had been invited to their major league spring training camp (as opposed to spring training with the other low-minor players).

No matter: The telegenic former Heisman Trophy victor will once again be the most scrutinized player in camp as his quixotic bid to forge a career in baseball resumes. Tebow signed a minor league contract with the Mets in September and attended both their instructional league and the Arizona Fall League. During his time with the Mets' Class-A affiliate, Tebow batted.220 with three home runs, 23 RBIs, 14 doubles, and a triple.

Although Tebow drew large numbers at games previous year, his numbers on the field were less impressive.


Tim Tebow's first professional baseball season was short on production, heavy on hype and an overwhelming success at the minor league box office. He started the season at Columbia, ?South Carolina, in the South Atlantic League and was promoted to the Florida State League to play for Class A St. Lucie in late June.

"In looking back, there's a lot of ups and downs, a lot of learning moments", he said.

Per the Mets' official Twitter account, Tebow was one of nine players invited to Major League Baseball camp.
