Tim Tebow has become a huge target now that he’s made the move up to play with the Port St. Lucie Mets. It seems the target might have been on his head as an opposing pitcher took a shot at him during his last at bat of the game against the Tampa Yankees.
Fortunately, Tebow was fine and like that tweet says, he stayed in the game and scored a run. Here’s the hit from another angle:
Tebow is hitting .248 with five home runs and 25 RBIs since his call up from the Columbia Fireflies. He’s appeared in 43 games for the Mets and has been gaining some steam on the hype train with some of his stats.
