PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- The first hit of Tim Tebow's professional career will go down in the record books as a home run.
The first time he stepped up to the plate Wednesday in his instructional league, he knocked it out of the park.
Tebow is a former NFL quarterback who played for the Broncos and more. He tried out for Major League Baseball teams and found his first home with the New York Mets.
He'll play as an outfielder, and if he continues along his current path, he's projected to progress quickly in his instructional league.
Some still doubt his success in the big leagues, but Tebow and his agent believe he has what it takes to become a success.
Tebow's first contract came with a $100,000 bonus.
