New York Mets Promote Tim Tebow to St. Lucie’s Minor League Baseball Team

Tim Tebow is stepping up to the plate in Port St. Lucie—literally. 

The former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL quarterback is being promoted from the Columbia Fireflies, a minor league team in South Carolina, to the St. Lucie Mets baseball team. 

On Sunday, Tebow played his final game with the Firelies, batting a .222 with three homeruns, 23 RBIs, 69 stikeouts and an on-base-plus slugging percentage of .651. 

Tebow has previously spent time at the Met’s spring training facility in Port St. Lucie and is returning to a state where he is worshiped for his football accomplishments at University of Florida. 

Tebow’s first St. Lucie Mets series will kick off on June 27. The game begins at 6:30 p.m.
