Tebow hit a two-run home run in his first at-bat to help the Class A Columbia, South Carolina, Fireflies to a 14-7 victory over the visiting Augusta GreenJackets, ESPN reported.
“All of my sports experiences helped me for moments like that,” the former Heisman Trophy winner and Denver Broncos quarterback told the network. “Playing in The Swamp or Death Valley or in Mile High Stadium in the playoffs, they all helped.”
Granted, it was just one moment in one low-minors game; the Mets’ signee also struck out three times. But another look shows the crowd getting pretty excited.
Twitter buzzed, too ― with jokes, For The Win noted.
