During a Spring Training game against the Boston Red Sox, New York Mets outfielder and former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow recorded his first hit of Spring Training 2019.

Tebow, “who hit a dribbler to the pitcher his first time up,” took the first pitch of his second at-bat to the outfield, hitting a single off of Red Sox pitcher #91 Mike Shawaryn. Shawaryn was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 5th round in 2016.

Mets #15 Tim Tebow has had nine at-bats so far in Spring Training 2019, according to the MLB website, and he currently has an average of .222 and an OPS of .522. On his career during Spring Training, Tebow has had 54 at-bats with an average of .130 and an OPS of .319.

According to Fox News, Tebow, age 31, was again invited by the New York Mets to join them in Port St. Lucie for major league training, making this “his third season with the Amazins as he comes off an All-Star selection last season with the Mets’ Double-A affiliate, though his year was cut short after he broke the hamate bone in his right hand. He batted .273 with a .336 on-base percentage, slugging six homers and adding 36 RBIs.”
