Tim has been doing well and various MLB Executives and serious Baseball Journals like Baseball America have noticed. He’s hung in there against Baseball’s best Prospects many of whom are tuning up for their next stop…the Major Leagues. “Impressive” has been the word most used by Baseball Execs and Insiders.
This is some of the toughest competition he’ll face in the Minor Leagues and he hasn’t been blown away which is what many thought would happen given they’re all Seasoned and he hasn’t Played in a decade. It actually has been impressive.
It looks like he’s too eager to swing but has no problem finding the ball.
“In seven plate appearances, Tebow has grounded out five times, struck out once and walked once.
Goodwin said he saw encouraging signs during Tebow’s at-bats. But he also said former NFL quarterback is still getting out in front of pitches rather than waiting on them.
“There’s some balls that he’s still rolling over on and that’s still going to take some time to get that, where you’re staying back just a hair longer. “He’ll be fine. He had a good last at-bat where got the bat head through. It seemed like he came through with some pop.”
Thanks David for reporting good news and he is making it happen too!:)
I have been following the box scores for Tim’s team. He hasn’t gotten a hit yet in 3 games. He does have an RBI and scored twice. He walked twice. His coach said he was getting out in front of the ball. It is better to be out front then late on the ball. It means the speed isn’t too much for him. He is actually a little too quick. Hopefully, he will adjust on start smacking the ball like we all know he can. I hope it doesn’t hurt him to miss Friday and Saturday games. The more he faces live pitching the better he will get.
Thanks Bubbaelvis for the positive info. and glad u r o.k.–thank God we survived the forecasters predictions…
A followup article alluding to what David and Bubbaelvis discussed earlier:
Thanks for the link, Danny!
Nice writeup on Tim:
Good link. Hopefully he gets some hits.
Jeez, though, not sure he’s tough enough to handle minor league baseball. That takes character and sacrifice. What has he ever sacrificed, besides about 46 million women who would do whatever he asked in an instant?
The usual negative Tebowtalk. Don’t take it to heart. I thought it was rediculous they put him in that league anyway, has to be way over his head at this point. He is probably doing fine for saying.
Tom Goodwin, the Scottsdale manager, who is also the first base coach for the Mets thinks he’s doing fine, just some minor adjustments.
Tim has had some walks and runs scored, which tells be in part that he’s seeing the ball ok and making good decisions with base running. No errors yet in the field either.
Patience is the key. Tim is a professional athlete which puts him light years ahead of the typical prospect. The story isn’t over yet, it’s just beginning.
So many are quick to declare him a failure at baseball. What does that say for the other 3 guys in the lineup ( who have NOT had a decade long hiatus) who also are hitless? They aren’t a “story,” so there is no mention of them. One has to search far and wide to find positve and encouraging articles on Tim. So many sports reporters are resentful and covetous of Tebow. It’s very discouraging for super-fans like myself. Mostly I try to avoid reading the snide, hater stuff.
Agree w/u and they seem to make it a point to do just that, but looks like they are not going to stop him w/negativity as it only makes him more determined to prove them wrong!
Amen to that Danny!
Nobody has heard of Keith Law and he must not have made it in life to be so critical of someone who has made a “HUGE” difference in his life as well as others…GO TEBOW!
Guess I am too much of a Tebow Fan and know u probably r as well, Lynn.
Did some research and found out this guy had his ESPN Account suspended b/c he was arguing with C. Schilling about “Evolution vs. Creationism”–he is in favor of Evolution obviously so, it looks like pure christian bias at this point and what else is new! Could add more, but will stop w/that!
Happy that he is moving forward in spite of obstacles and very inspiring…GO TEBOW!!!:D
