Tim Tebow homers twice, strikes out 5 times in 1st series
Tebow's first home run came in his first minor league at-bat.
On Sunday, the former football star hit his second home run in his third game of the season for the Columbia (S.C.) Fireflies.
The Fireflies would go on to win the game, 6-0. Tebow turned on an inside pitch and crushed it over the right-field wall. The 2007 Heisman Trophy victor didn't have the same doubts on his second dinger.
Tebow, a first round pick of the Broncos in 2010, is batting.250 (three for 12) with a walk.

Wednesday, April 12th Forecast: More showers today along with gusty south winds
Wednesday and Thursday will both be warm and dry day with highs near 80 and partly cloudy skies. You won't need a winter coat, but you should have an umbrella handy.
It's also worth pointing out that Tebow now has just one less home run than Michael Jordan, who left basketball to pursue baseball.
Plenty of mocked Tebow for taking a shot at professional baseball, but he hasn't exactly fallen flat on his face out there. Despite the age gap, the Mets are betting on Tebow being a hit for their organization.
The Fireflies (4-0) averaged 6,501 fans per game in their season-opening series at Spirit Communications Park after averaging 3,785 fans for 69 home games last season.
