Any guess as to what Tebow did in his first plate appearance with the Double-A Binghamton (New York) Rumble Ponies on Thursday?
Tebow, who arrived in town on Monday, started in left field against Portland and batted seventh. Drew Gagnon started for the Ponies and gave up just two hits in six innings of work.
The Sea Dogs opened the season in Binghamton with a game against Tebow's Rumble Ponies.
Playing his first game in Double-A ball, the New York Mets' unique minor leaguer hit a three-run homer on the first pitch he saw.
"Any time you have support, our entire team is feeling really good", Tebow said. Shoot, even the weather, not out getting to fully practice the past few days.
Tim Tebow wasted no time.
Tebow plays for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies.
"Knowing that in every first at-bat that he's gotten in his professional career, he's done the same thing". I wish him all the best. They hosted the Sea Dogs Thursday for the opening game of the Eastern League baseball season.
First pitch is set for 7:05 pm.
