"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.
