When it comes to Tim Tebow, the former Florida Gator and current St. Lucie Met is all class.

According to, Tebow was taking practice swings on July 29 ahead of his at-bat against the Charlotte Stone Crabs when a young kid approached him to receive a handshake. The 10-year-old boy, who has high-functioning autism and has a genetic disorder that produces tumors on his nerve issue, approached the on-deck circle and Tebow trotted over to greet him.

The boy broke down in tears before Tebow approached the plate and promptly crushed a three-run home run.

That’s like a scene out of movie. Or just another day in the life of Tebow.
