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.

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.
