I’ve said all along that if Tim Tebow is going to succeed in baseball, it’s going to be because God anointed him to do it, for God’s purposes. A lot of people thought Tebow was so bad that he would flame out in the low minors.
He is hitting .327 in 10 games at the Advanced Class A level, and he shows signs that he’s capable of big things, and never more so than last night when his St. Lucie Mets played a home game against the Daytona Tortugas. We’ll take you to the bottom of the ninth inning, with the Mets trailing 4-3 and Tebow at the plate:
By the way, if you’re not familiar with the term, as walk-off home run is when the home team hits a homer to win the game in the bottom of the ninth inning (or an extra inning), ending the game right there and forcing to visitors to walk off the field without having recorded the third out.
It was his third home run since joining St. Lucie, and he spoke to the local media after the game (See Below)
You’ll notice that Tebow doesn’t turn the postgame interviews into a sermon. He knows it’s not necessary to do that all the time to glorify God. He knows his baseball and he understands both game strategy and the mechanics of hitting. Very impressive for a guy who didn’t play at all between high school and the age of 29, as is his track record so far in Advanced Class A.
It’s only 10 games, of course, but a guy who’s as undeserving of a spot as some of the national media would like you to think would never get off to a start like this, even for a short duration of time.
It’s almost as if Tebow has help . . . from someone who wants him to use his platform as an unlikely baseball hero to do something even bigger.
