Tim Tebow hits second home run for Columbia Fireflies

Tim Tebow hit another home run Sunday, but this time he didn't have to awkwardly stop at second base.

The home run gave the Columbia Fireflies a 6-0 lead.

Tim Tebow has come a long way from his One-Man Baseball Fantasy Camp.

The Fireflies, part of the Class A South Atlantic League, are 4-0 during the first week of the 2017 season. "He works on things every single day".

Antonio Conte's side beat Bournemouth later that day to restore its seven-point advantage with seven games remaining this season. You used to see players like [Frank] Lampard do that all the time . "He is a unique player", he added.

"I can honestly sit here before every one of you and say I've had so much fun training, pursuing it, getting hits, striking out, whatever it's been", Tebow said. Period. Tebow is not preventing some future star from staying in the Mets organization.

Entering Sunday, the 2007 Heisman Trophy victor was 2-of-10 in two games for the Fireflies.

For the season, Tebow's 13 official at-bats have yielded 3 hits, 3 runs, 5 RBIs and 5 strikeouts.

The Fireflies, who won all four games against Augusta, continue their opening homestand with a three-game set against the Hickory (North Carolina) Crawdads that begins Monday.
