    Tim batting 7th playing LF tonight. Game time 7:05 Eastern.

    Tebow hits a double with an RBI and scores 8-2

    • David says:

      1st at bat-Tebow pops out to 3rd
      2nd at bat-double lines to right center with RBI
      3rd at bat-walks on full count LOB

    • David says:

      WV wins 9-3
      Tebow was 1 for 3 with a double, an RBI, a run and a walk batting .220
      Cone was 3 for 5 tonight increasing his average to .245
      Tim’s hit came on a line drive to the OUTFIELD. Maybe he’ll notice.
      Sunday’s game is at 2:05

      • Danny says:

        Certainly a good night for Tim in the stat column. Perhaps his good friend Daniel Murphy texted him “Hit the ball in the air!” LOL

        • David says:

          I hope Murphy texted him. 🙂 I was beginning to think that Mr. Alderman told him to cool it cause they aren’t ready for him yet in NY. As Brandi pointed out, other teams can steal him.

    • ck says:

      Won’t be long before he gets his promotion and had a feeling…

  3. Sam says:

    after beeing in the nfl, I think Tim knows what this team is helping him with.

  4. Danny says:

    Tim batting 6th playing LF today. Game time 2:05 Eastern.

  5. Danny says:

    Tebow leads off the 5th inning with a HOME RUN to left center!

    Tim’s 3rd HR and 13th RBI of the season.

      • ck says:

        That Lou guy who took the video was getting offers from all over the place, including CBS, SB, etc. They were asking permission to use which was nice considering how he is on his way to the “BIG TIME”! Liked the fan waving the towel as he rounded all the bases on the HR too! Thanks, David, for finding this and a classic!!!

      • tawk2 says:

        Just watched, Wow! Thanks for the link David. So proud of Tebow!

        • David says:

          It was deep and opposite field. Danny said once that we don’t know what his coaches are telling him to work on. Most of what he has been hitting is keeping the bat level and trying to hit the gaps. They may have just started a new phase of Tebow’s development and turned him loose.

          • Brandi says:

            I would agree David. Initial Reports at the time of the Showcase were that Tim had developed his swing as a line drive hitter. The Mets had him working on consistent contact which had him leading the league in ground balls. Now they seem to be working on slowly elevating his launch path without falling into lots of strike-outs or creating a new problem of lots of pop-ups.

            He still seems to be improving and much of it still at an incredible pace. Each week or even faster they seem to be adding to the list things they have him working on. Many of these things are issues they spend an entire Season with a Player to get through. With Tim they’ve compressed it into a month if not a few weeks. It’s a truly torrid pace of development he’s been on.

        • ck says:

          Agreed! GO TEBOW!

      • ck says:

        Think he was really happy with that HR and teammates along for the ride! Thanks for the video, David. That’s some power!

      Lou Bezjak‏ @LouatTheState 14m14 minutes ago
      Tebow with RBI double in final at bat. @ColaFireflies lose 6-3 #MiLB

      Tim was 2 for 4 with a home run with 1 RBI and an RBI double, 2 SOs and his AVG is .230

  6. Danny says:

    Tim with a HR and a double went 2-4 with his 3rd home run (solo shot leading off the 5th inning) and another near home run in the bottom of the 9th that bounced on the warning track in right center on the fly. That hit was a double and scored Winningham who was on second.

    Tim accounted for two of Columbia’s three runs today.

    Tim moves into third place on the team in HR’s with 3. He also moves into a tie for third with 14 RBI’s. Six total bases puts him third on the team with 45. His double moves him into a three way tie for third on the team with 6.

    After his 0-16 hitless streak, Tebow is 3-6 with a HR, 3 RBI’s, 2 runs scored and a walk.

    • David says:

      That is awesome, except for the loss. They will be playing Charleston, Lexington and Augusta in the next 10 days and should win a lot of those games. We trail Greenville by 6 games. Thanks for the details Danny.

    • Danny says:

      Tim hit the home run after the rain delay so not a lot of fans got to see it.

      The ball was really well hit into the berm in left field, just where fans can lay down on blankets. There were only two fans out there so they got Tim’s KR ball. Now THAT’s dedication!

      I saw the 372 marker on the fence where Tim hit it and it looked like the ball landed 30-40 feet up the hill beyond the fence. Factoring that the hill slopes up, I’m guessing that measured around 450 feet, which is quite a shot….and that was to the opposite field! In short, he crushed it.

      • ck says:

        Reminds me of “Tony The Tiger”…”GRRRRRRRRRRREAT”! Thanks for a great analysis too and happy he is on the leader board, Danny.

      • Sage says:

        I enjoy the details, so thanks.

        Mostly I just check the box score and log.

  7. David says:

    Absolutely!

  8. Danny says:

    Tonight’s game has been rained out. This from the Fireflies Twitter feed:

    WEATHER UPDATE: Tonight’s game has been postponed and will be made up as a doubleheader on June 10th at 5:05pm.

  9. Brandi says:

    Keep an eye out. Ballots for the South Atlantic League All-Star Team will be available probably sometime within a week. Although Fan Voting isn’t the only criteria for Minor League All-Star Selection (Unlike MLB All-Star Starters which are picked entirely by the Fans), it’s a very big component and there’s a lot of speculation this is the big reason why the Mets decided to leave Tim where he is until after the All-Star Break.

    The Game is being Played in Columbia and much buzz is already beginning surrounding the “Home Run Derby” which takes place the night before and will almost certainly be on TV if, as is highly likely, Tim is one of the All-Star Players.

    The Game is June 20th, Home Run Derby June 19th. Ballots last year were made available May 30th. No word yet on when this year’s will be. But it’s coming real soon and voting only lasts a few days. Obviously Tim is expected to be the overwhelming choice of the Fans. But, as they say, every vote counts. 🙂

  10. ck says:

    Hey Buzzy, at least that guy in the post was able to get an autograph for his daughter and two books signed! LA Tebow went out of his way, again. Happy ending!;D

  11. Danny says:

    Tebow batting 6th playing DH tonight

  12. Danny says:

    Breakfast baseball!

    Doubleheader today. Two 7 inning games, first one 10:05 Eastern and the second one 20 minutes after the first game ends.

    Looks like rain is holding off in Columbia until 2:00 this afternoon so they should get both games in.

    Tim is batting 6th playing DH the first game. The second game’s lineup hasn’t been announced yet.

  13. David says:

    I thought Tim was crouching in his stance a little more when he hit the home run on Sunday. Today, the announcer is saying that he is crouching so it looks like he is trying to swing up at the ball and hitting for the fence. Now, we will see his power more often. He hit 2 HRs in his first 12 at bats, before he started hitting line drives and grounders.

  14. David says:

    Fireflies win 3-0
    Tim was 0-3 grounding out twice with 1 strikeout. He fouled a lot today.

  15. Danny says:

    Lineups just announced, Tim batting 6th playing LF.

    We’ll get to see if the whole DH/LF theory plays out in this game as discussed earlier in this thread.

    • ck says:

      Danny: Sometimes, they give the “designated hitter” (DH) the position in order to rest a player or the pitcher is not strong at bat and just found this out by looking it up. Not sure what the other theory is though…;D
      Thanks for all the invaluable insight and hope to get up to speed which might take awhile compared to you guys! LA

  16. Danny says:

    Tim with a single, eventually scores Columbia’s first run of the game.

    Tim gets to first on a single, then gets to second base on a balk (not to be confused with a walk), then to third base on a passed ball, then scored on a sacrifice fly to center from Milton Ramos.

    Solid decision making on the basepaths.

    • David says:

      Tebow goes full count and then hits it down the left field line for a single. 2 for 2 AVG .236

    • Danny says:

      …and then the rains comes!! 2:00 pm Eastern, right on schedule. Rain delay right now.

      Nice hit by Tim, hope they get to finish the game.

    • Danny says:

      Game back on, Tebow gets to second on a walk, then Milton Ramos hits a double that scores Tim from second.

      Today Tim now 2-2 (singles) with 2 runs scored.

      • ck says:

        Thanks for all the updates, Danny/David. Much appreciated and makes sense as to what is going on when you two explain it.

    • Danny says:

      Third at bat, Tim gets hit by a pitch. First pitch to the next batter is a wild pitch and Tim moves to second. He gets stranded there as the inning ends.

    • ck says:

      He keeps plugging away and that IS some inspired willpower!

  17. David says:

    Charleston leads 10-5 after 5 innings. Tebow was hit by a pitch in the foot, then advanced to 2nd on a wild pitch. Brasher flied out to center to end the inning. Tim has been on base 3 of 3 times, scoring twice.

  18. Sage says:

    D & D, thanks as always.

    Tim Tebow on the Today Show
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TqIGsboxQeI
    The video that follows is of Tim speaking in March at the Family Church in West Palm.

    • Danny says:

      Thanks for sharing; finally got to watch it, pretty cool. Tim is always excited to share that side of his life.

    • ck says:

      That was a very nice interview by Kathy Lee w/Tebow and didn’t know he had another new book out…going to have to purchase that one too!;D Thanks, David, for the link! GOD BLESS TIM TEBOW ALWAYS!

  20. Danny says:

    Fireflies split a doubleheader today that was shortened by persistent rain in the area.

    Fireflies won 3-0 in the first game led by a strong pitching performance by Humphreys. The Fireflies dropped the second game 10-5 in a 5 inning shortened game.

    Tim played DH in the first game and went 0-3 with a strikeout. In the second game he played in LF and went 2-2 (both singles) and also got hit by a pitch. He also scored 2 runs. Interestingly enough Tim advanced the bases in almost every type of play; a balk, a walk, a wild pitch, a passed ball, a sacrifice fly and a hit by pitch.

    The Firefles are back out on the road for a four game series with Lexington beginning tomorrow night. They come back home Monday for a three game series with Augusta.

    • ck says:

      Thanks Danny for the recap. and looks like he is getting lots of practice in on a number of different plays. GO TEBOW!

    • tawk2 says:

      thanks ck for posting scedule. Happy Memorial Day to you and all here. On Sun June 4th we will be watching Tebow, hope he gets to play, so excited! Also praying game doesn’t get rained out.

      • ck says:

        Hi tawk2! Glad you are getting a chance to see Tebow and know you won’t be disappointed either…praying you don’t get rain!;D (yvw)

    • Sage says:

      Same goes, ck and Tawk.

      It’s been pretty chilly up in the mountains. Could go for a good grilled burger.

      • ck says:

        Hi Sage! Heard you are still getting snow in Colorado…that is pretty cold for May! A “grilled burger” sure sounds nice and God bless all the patriots too!;D (yvw)

  23. ck says:

    Just a comment about what happened recently in the news regarding an incident that should have never happened. Trump is right…”DRIVE THEM OUT!” Has to be the most subhuman act imaginable! Hope they “DRIVE THEM OUT OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH”!!! Sad to hear of all the kids innocently attending a concert no less and the unthinkable happens–thoughts/prayers.

    • tawk2 says:

      I agree ck makes me so upset! How could anyone do this to adults much less children! I guess we aren’t safe anywhere. My prayers to all there.

      • ck says:

        Never use to hear of anything horrific like this growing up and it just defies definition…agree w/u, tawk2.

  24. Danny says:

    Fireflies begin a four game series at Lexington. Game time 7:05 Eastern.

    Tim batting 6th playing LF tonight.

  25. Danny says:

    Columbia wins the first game out of a four game series at Lexington 3-2.

    The Fireflies scored three runs in the first inning, all after two outs. After the Fireflies scored a run, with runners on first and second, Tim walks to load the bases and extends the inning. Milton Ramos is next at bat and doubles scoring the runners on second and third and Tim moves to third base when the next batter struck out to end the inning.

    As it turns out, the three runs are exactly what the Fireflies needed tonight.

    Tim goes 0-3 tonight with a walk and 2 strikeouts. He however extended the rally in the first inning with a 2 out walk allowing Ramos to double and drive in the final two runs of the inning.

    Tonight’s attendance was 7590. Not too bad considering capacity is 6994! They are expecting up to 8400 for Saturday’s game. Nothing like Tebow to bring a little excitement to the ballpark.

    Next game tomorrow night with a 7:05 start.

  26. Danny says:

  27. Danny says:

    Did a little more digging on the Legends’ ballpark capacity.

    6994 fixed seats
    9000+ including, lawn, picnic and standing room only

    Ballpark record – 9300+ in June 2006 when Roger Clemens pitched there.

    • ck says:

      Thanks for the link, Sage. Couldn’t agree more regarding injecting “liberal mindset” for PC reasons.:(

  29. Danny says:

    Tim isn’t in the lineup tonight. Presumably he is available for substitution if needed.

    Game time 7:05 Eastern tonight.

    • Sage says:

      They’ve got him on a part-time schedule. He could deliver pizza the rest of the week.

      • Brandi says:

        No way of really knowing their thinking. But my guess is they’re trying to be careful with burning him out. August has been called the “Dog Days” in Major League Baseball basically forever because even Players who have been Playing since they were Kids, have gone through all those Minor League Seasons and have a few MLB Seasons under their belts hit a wall then where fighting total exhaustion and emotional fraying becomes almost overwhelming.

        They have to find the physical and emotional strength to get right back at it every night and for most it isn’t easy. No other Sports has Baseball’s grueling Season. NBA & NHL Play half as many Games. NFL one Game a week and they get angry when it’s not the same day every week so they can keep their rest and other patterns.

        Baseball Players get NONE of that. They have to deal with almost 24 hour a day stress for 6 straight months. They don’t even start most Players at this level because they want them to have a year or two Playing a shorter Schedule even after 4 College Seasons to give their minds & bodies a chance to begin adjusting.

        Tim gets none of that. He just has to make the transition from scratch.

      • Danny says:

        I recall reading somewhere where Jose Legar has rested all the players about equally over the season. It may seem that Tim is out a lot because we focus so much on him out here but a lot of other players get needed time off too.

        Tim has done remarkably well this season so far. It doesn’t always show up in stats, but careful observation shows that he’s doing the little things to move runners along and using his speed to make things happen.

        David posted a link above that Tim had a nice catch in LF to end the game with the tying run on base. It just shows as a putout in the stats but in the bigger picture it turned out to be a big play.

    Tim Tebow addresses media at Whitaker Bank Ballpark (May 25, 2017)

    This was before Thursday’s game where the Fireflies made Tim available to the media for a few minutes.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7C6Z-XTXkQg

    • David says:

      Sorry, I just noticed that the article is 4 years old, but I’d never seen it. It obviously did nothing to change the situation. He can now add SJW and transgender activism to the list of offensive things that the NFL uses to threaten your city council.

    • Danny says:

      As St. Louis is painfully aware, taxpayers are holding the bag on the Rams’ departure to LA – an obsolete stadium not paid for and a practice facility that is worth $20M dollars that the city had given the Rams the option to lease at 25K a year and after 2025 buy it for one dollar. Needless to say, it’s a big court fight over that.

      St. Louis got a good dose of the NFL and it left a bad taste in their mouth.

      Now there’s a lot of pushback for any taxpayer money spent on a potential MLS franchise from both the state and the city, more so by the state. Good for them, someone is waking up.

      • David says:

        St. Louis should invite a different pair of college teams to come every weekend to their neutral site like FL and GA meet in Jacksonville. The city makes a ton of money off of out of town guests.

    • ck says:

      We need to do more than “BOYCOTT”! This is beyond despicable imo! What a bunch of crooks at our expense!!! Need to cut the cable cord and send Emails too!

      Thanks Danny for all your great info all the time!

      yw tawk2.

      Rain out tonight, doubleheader starting at 12:05 Eastern tomorrow.

      I think this was a huge night planned in Lexington as they were expecting a huge crowd tonight. Quite a disappointment.

      Tawk2, next week is your journey into the Tebow experience! As the unofficial TZ game corespondent, we are expecting lots of updates! LOL

  34. Sage says:

    What, is it flooding on the east coast?? Tim will be lucky to get 300 at bats this season. Sorry to be negative. Just not what I was expecting.

    • tawk2 says:

      Sage the Eastcoast has a lot of rain, but this year seems like more than usual. I know I wish games would quit getting postponed or called. Peaying for better weather the rest of the season.

      • Sage says:

        Ya, tawk. It’s frustrating when they sit Tim one game, and then there are rain postponments after rain postponments, then they sit him again and it all repeats.

        I realize there are other players on the team who need work too. It would just be neat to see what he could do with more continuity.

        On the plus side, rain and cold keep the global warming scare-mongers at bay. We had six inches of snow in my corner of Colorado last week.

        The left warns of sea level rising 26 feet, but al gore not so long ago bought an ocean front estate.

        • tawk2 says:

          I know how you feel Sage, I too am frustrated about Tim not getting at bats. Hopefully it will get better soon. All we can do is hang in there.

        • ck says:

          Yes, that is how they work it…”Do as I say, not as I do!” Like how he flew everywhere creating huge “carbon footprints” and not a word about that! Didn’t know about the oceanfront property…crazy hypocrite making a living off of it!

    Scout has begun a new weekly feature they call “Rookies on the Rise” where each week they will do a report on an up and coming Minor League Player. For their first ever review they picked Tim Tebow. FYI, they recommend the Mets promote him immediately.

  39. Andrea says:

    Thanks Brandi – I voted for you know who.

    • tawk2 says:

      Yes thanks Brandi, I too voted for you know who!

    • Brandi says:

      Y’all are welcome.

      It’ll be interesting to see how it turns out. First, you can vote as often as you like. It even has a link to vote again with the response included notice.

      2nd, it’s clear what Baseball wants. Every category with a Columbia Player had that Player listed first. The first listing of all was Jose Leger for Manager and it didn’t even include the Team’s Name in parentheses afterwards.

      Tebow Detractors may stuff the ballot box with non-Tebow votes. They’ve obviously done it before. With Jaguars they even sent out a supposed ballot that was instead simply a No Vote for Tebow with the Jags, posted in every Tebow Fan Forum, including this one, to trick Tebow Fans an then posted all the gazillions of Jaguars fans who “hate” Tim Tebow, despite it mostly being Tebow Fans fooled into thinking they were going to get to vote for him.

      So anything’s possible with these guys. They busted up Tebow Fan Forums and tried to do the same with this one. So I put nothing past those guys.

      But Major League Baseball has been equally clear. Tim Tebow is going to be synonymous with Baseball no matter what it takes.

      Unlike the NFL, MLB isn’t stupid. It will happily accept each and every Fan of Tim Tebow’s as Baseball Fans and is clear in telling Tebow Detractors “buzz off!”

      • Sage says:

        Shouldn’t a guy be hitting better than 220 to get on the All-Star?

        I love Tebow and want him to succeed, but All-Star is something you should earn.

        • Brandi says:

          Minor League Baseball is slightly different from Major League Baseball with its All-Star Game. In MiLB Fan Voting is a huge component of the selection process. But only a component. SportsWriters and the Managers also have large roles.

          In Major League Baseball the Starting All-Star Players are voted entirely by the Fans. The Manager for each League’s All-Star Team then adds Pitchers and Reserve Players to the group of Players the Fans chose.

          The All-Star Game is fairly early in the Baseball Season so choosing the “Best” Players is basically impossible anyway. You can at most pick the Players who got off to the hottest start to a Season. Which usually means very little. Slow starts, fast starts. Either way, there is alot of Season left after the All-Star Break. So often, even when “merit” enters into the equation, it’s almost always last year’s merit. The last 2, 3 years’ merit. But almost never the Season the voting is for. There have even been instances a Player gets voted for the All-Star Game because they didn’t get in the year before and Fans were sort of balancing the scales.

          But that is the key. It’s the Fans. It is precisely who Professional Sports are supposed to be entirely about because they are the irreplaceable part that makes the whole thing work.

          Leagues have forgotten that. Teams have forgotten that. Players have forgotten that. SportsWriters have forgotten that. And far too often, Fans have forgotten that because they never hear anyone else saying they matter most besides the occasional lip service. Usually as part of some PR Campaign to try to smooth things over for the fans having just gotten screwed over.

          But at least in this one highly visible way, Baseball hasn’t forgotten.

          In my opinion, that is to be celebrated. Not discouraged. Fans get so little as it is.

          There’s a lot of factors that go in to projecting the value of a player to a franchise including things that transcend the stat sheet. It’s been written many times out here that Tim gets on bases many times on errors that show up as an at-bat but nothing statistical that reflects the fact he got on base. Assets Tim has by hitting the ball hard and using his speed to force fielders to make mistakes don’t get in the stat sheet, although it should, as Tim being on base is the potential to score a run.

          He does a good job in the field and has thrown out a runner this season.

          Of course, he is an incredible ambassador to baseball. This is a good thing that Tim is getting an opportunity to be an all star.

          Who can forget his first at-bat home run on April 6th? That sent EVERYONE in the baseball stratosphere buzzing and the NFL/PFT trolls sucking lemons.

          He’s on the ballot, and I voted for him.

            That’s a HUGE point. Not only doesn’t he get credit for them. Statistically they hurt him cause they count the same as an out. Add just the times his power, speed & hustle forced an error and Tebow’s Hitting .300, On-Base of .400 & Slugging of around .500. Those are Hall-of-Fame numbers.

            Someone did an analysis of MLB Players with the most career On-Base by Error. Jeter was #1. Everyone else at the top were All-Stars, some Hall-of-Famers and all known for speed and hustle.

            It’s an aspect of the statistics Baseball should look at changing. Even if only treating it like a Walk. No At-Bat counted. But On-Base % counted with On By Error included. The difference between Players who happen to get on by a Fielding Error and those who force those errors would stand out. Tim is clearly in that latter group.

    Terry Frei bumped off by the PC police today. I’m pretty sure I’ve heard him playing PC cop himself on earlier occasions. What sports journalist isn’t sanctimonious these days? There isn’t a single one.

    A stupid tweet, but if he’d just said it would be nice to see an American win on Memorial Day there would have been less flack.

    What a lousy paper the Denver Post is. A leftward spin on every headline for at least 20 years. I don’t even pick it up, let alone pay for it. And they don’t care. Publishing has become a vanity enterprise.

      So much for “Freedom of Speech!” Do we still have a “First Amendment”? Yet, liberals can say anything and get away with it…HMMMM! Well, Sage, at least you are not buying their rag of a paper and for that matter, neither do I. Have not bought a newspaper in ages nor do I subscribe to any online…too biased impov.

        Hope he does what O’Reilly did and finds another venue which happens to be even more successful! Definitely left FOX in the dust for doing the “WRONG” action and they are now in third for ratings instead of first (still watch Hannity and looks like he is their next target…UGH!)

    Tebow doubles with an RBI. He scores when Ramos doubles. Ramos scores when Cone singles. Fireflies lead 4-0
