    Tebow left the on-deck circle to greet an autistic boy, then hit a home run.
    This is from July 29th.

      That is one special video, David, and made me cry…so glad that kid had his moment w/Tebow and had to be inspired by God plus a HR too!;D No, “you can’t make this up” and especially on video…true!

  2. David says:

    Tebow just hit an RBI single on a ground ball to RF and drove in the go ahead run to make it 6-5 in the bottom of the 8th inning. LOB, still 6-5 going into the 9th. Tim is 1 for 4 tonight hitting .248

  3. Shirley says:

    Yay! Tebow finally got a hit!

  4. David says:

    An anonymous MLB scout comments on Tebow’s progress. I don’t really put a lot of trust in what they say because many of these guys are trying to fulfill their own negative appraisals from last year. Just like the NFL, they couldn’t possibly have been wrong about Tebow’s ability. It’s probably a Rays scout that whiffed.
    http://www.tampabay.com/sports/baseball/rays/the-tim-tebow-baseball-experiments-big-question/2333183
    We really don’t know why Tebow’s hitting almost disappeared 12 games ago. It was like someone turned off a switch. I still think that the organization may be telling him to stop hitting so well to keep other teams from becoming interested in signing him. He was hitting .315 in 28 games and suddenly he has only 5 hits in the last 45 at bats and 12 games. I’m not buying it. Somebody told him to chill. There is more to this than meets the eye.

    • ck says:

      You are right about the article despite praise they have to lace w/negativity b/c, of course, it is Tebow! Anyone else and they would be singing their praises all over the place…what happens when he makes it and they have to eat their words, yet again?!!! Agree w/u David b/c something smells fishy…hmmm

    • brandi says:

      Nah. You have to remember, the Mets sent Tim to the Instructional League then the Arizona Fall League shortly followed by Spring Training. He’s been playing Baseball almost non-stop for a year.

      Even Tim Tebow eventually gets tired.

      He has to find that second wind and push through this. But the good news is, after this just Playing a regular schedule will almost feel easy.

      • Danny says:

        Including the time ramping up for last year’s tryout Tebow has been playing non-stop baseball for the better part of 18 months, whether it’s been on the field, extra work with his hitting coaches or working out with other players like Daniel Murphy and Chad Moeller.

        • brandi says:

          Yep. The Mets even told him he’d need to ease up on his training regimen because he’d get burned out.

          I’d love to see him push through and have a late surge. Then take a break and get a little rest. From what I’ve seen the Mets and Major League Baseball are fine with what he’s been doing. They KNOW what a drain the Game is and that everyone has to adjust to its pace and schedule.

          I don’t know if anyone’s noticed. But Baseball has stopped trying to push any Players as the new Face of the Game after Aaron Judge had to it down and take some rest because of his slump.

          I think they’re getting more comfortable that Tim’s Game will continue to grow and he’ll be that Face.

          • ck says:

            Would like to believe that, but sports due to the NFL mostly has left a “bad taste” in more ways than one!:(

          • brandi says:

            I truly understand that, CK.

            I’ve been saying for awhile that the rest of Football and all of the other Sports have to turn against the NFL or their own futures are at risk because of how many it’s turning off Sports entirely. It’s so visible and so ugly it convinces many that all Sports are dirty, nasty, vile, tasteless, valueless, characterless business that warps the soul of everyone they touch.

            Because that’s all the NFL is now.

  5. David says:

    Mets lose to Tampa tonight 11-5. Tim didn’t start but subbed in LF for half an inning with no plate appearances.
    http://www.milb.com/milb/stats/stats.jsp?gid=2017_08_10_sluafa_tbyafa_1&t=g_box&sid=t507

    • Danny says:

      Tebow was a defensive substitution in the 8th inning, no plays for him in the field.

      It was a three way substitution and Tebow ended up sixth in the order. The Mets would have had to bat around the order to get to him if he batted.

      I’m sure some of that was many fans came to see Tebow play and the Mets dugout heard about it all game.

    Fri Aug 11 Recap
    The Yankees walk away with a 12-5 win onver the Mets
    “The Mets tried to get back into the game in the fourth inning. Back-to-back RBI singles from Tim Tebow and Wuilmer Becerra made it 8-2. J.C. Rodriguez hit a sac fly to plate Tebow for an 8-3 deficit.

    The hopes of a comeback were quickly dashed when Aguilar bashed a three-run homer off of reliever Alex Palsha in the bottom of the fourth to put Tampa up 12-3.

    Anthony Dimino hit a two-run single for the Mets in the fifth inning to complete the scoring.”

    “Moment of the night: fan w/ cerebral palsy sings God Bless America and asked Tebow to join her. This is what it’s all about.”

    • Danny says:

      Oh that was AWESOME! And she did so well too!

    • ck says:

      Everybody in sports wants that video from Jason…agree w/Danny! Thanks David for posting and makes you believe that sports is not all a rotten business thanks to Tebow and all the videos that are reflective of just that…

  9. David says:

    Tim Tebow was hit in the head by a pitch in the 9th. He walked it off, stayed on base and later scored their only run in tonight’s 5-1 loss. He was driven in by a double by Dimino. Tim went 0 for 3 with 2 SOs and HBP with 1 score.
    https://twitter.com/BustedCollege/status/896546140136583169
    The ball knocked his helmet off and bounced off at a 90 degree angle.

  10. David says:

    Recap-After getting hit in the head, Tebow scored from first base on a double.
    He’s tough and fast.
    https://www.milb.com/sl-mets/news/yankees-stifle-mets-5-1/c-248069374/t-196097188
    “The Mets avoided the shutout when J.C. Rodriguez ripped a two-out RBI double in the top of the ninth. The hit scored Tim Tebow all the way from first base. Tebow got on base to start the inning when he was hit by a pitch in the back of the helmet.”

  11. Danny says:

    I have to admit Tim getting hit in the head took my breath away. I hope he’s going to be OK. Tim didn’t have hardly any time to get out of the way and fortunately it looked like he got his head and shoulders turned in just in time to take the ball in the back of the head, at least that’s how it seems with his helmet flying off.

    I don’t know why the pitcher would be throwing at him. Tim was leading off the ninth and it was the first pitch of the at-bat. Tampa was up 5-0 in the ninth.

    It was poetic justice as Tim scores from first on a J.C. Rodriquez double to left. It showed that Tim has some speed for sure.

    Tim Tebow sure is tough.

    • ck says:

      Agreed Danny. Just makes you wonder and came to the conclusion that it was on purpose…sad/pathetic. And I thought football was vicious w/hits being placed on certain players!

    • ck says:

      Guess where he comes from? The Charleston River Dogs that mocked Tebow while he was playing against him…not wondering anymore and proves it was on purpose!!!
      Guess we will see about Trevor Lane and if that is how he intends to play then he can plan on having a losing career going nowhere…must be extremely jealous of Tebow; i.e., success vs failure. Very protective where Tebow is concerned and just does not deserve this at all!

      • Danny says:

        The Charleston River Dogs are part of the Yankees organization. I didn’t care one way or the other before, but I’m beginning to not like the Yankees very much now. Perhaps it’s my “maturing” into a Mets fan! LOL

        Trevor Lane’s actions had no business in baseball. As far as I know, there’s been no remorse in his actions. From my understanding it was a 95mph fastball which I’ve seen ruin many player’s careers.

        I’ve seen a video of someone filming the at bat and there was very loud and audible “plunk” when the baseball hit Tim’s helmet. It bothers me anyway when players get hit in the head, no matter who I’m rooting for but as I said before it really takes my breath away when that happened to Tim.

        The Yankees have a good farm system and it shows how they’ve handled the Mets and other teams in the FSL; however I sense a bit of arrogance in Yankees organization and I just don’t like it.

        Pride cometh before the fall? We’ll see.

        • ck says:

          Thanks, Danny, and def. agree. Received an Email from this website that has a video and a report backing up everything you just stated! The site is Newsletters@patriottribute.com and they had the title of an article that is as follows: “After Terrifying Fastball To The Head, Tim Tebow Does The Unthinkable…It was shocking to see Tebow walk away from this and even more shocking to see what he did next!”. Maybe, you could post the link since you are lots more tech savy? Much appreciated. Wonder if that pitcher could have walked away after someone did the exact same thing to him? Well, at least we can know that it says “No weapon formed against you will prosper!”
          Def. unwarranted! Hope the Yankees lose BIG TIME if this is what they consider/condone as acceptable!;(

  12. Bubbaelvis says:

    All I can say is Trever better be glad that Tim is such a good guy. He wouldn’t want to see Tebow the truck storming the pound. In my experience a pitch like that would have the batter charging the mound and the team clearing the dugout. But then again I am pretty old school. He is a tough man. Scoring from first on the double was his way of saying it didn’t hurt. I am ready for Tim to go on a hitting spree to end the season.

    • Sage says:

      Me too. Any idea what’s been going on?

      There are nights when the Mets bats seem pretty quiet as a whole.

    • ck says:

      Well said, Bubbaelvis! This was more than upsetting and guess I’m not the only one seeing the OBVIOUS!!! He is a better Christian than I would be… unfortunately, on my account!

  13. tawk2 says:

    Happy Birthday Tebow! Hope your day is as special as you are!

  14. David says:

    Tim Tebow, 30, is playing LF and batting 7th tonight in Clearwater.
    Happy Birthday, Tim.

  15. David says:

    Tim grounds out to 3rd in 1st at bat
    In the 2nd at bat, he walked after starting 0-2. Advanced to 3rd on Paez’ double and scored on a walk with bases loaded. After Urena hit by a pitch and another run scores, Mets lead 4-0

  16. Shirley says:

    Gets a hit!

  17. Sage says:

    Thanks, Y’all

  18. ck says:

    Yes, a very “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” to Tim Tebow! At least they are winning in the 9th w/12 to 7!

  19. Danny says:

    Happy Birthday to Tim Tebow! Certainly the game went well and 2 RBI’s and three times on base capped off a great night for him.

    Clearwater Threshers celebrate Happy Birthday, Tim Tebow

    http://www.tampabay.com/sports/baseball/minors/clearwater-threshers-celebrate-happy-birthday-tim-tebow/2333780

    Some neat tidbits from the article:

    Tim Tebow and Michael Paez are roomates, both in Columbia and St. Lucie.

    Nice words from a couple of the Tampa Yankees.

    Tim has led chapel services on Sundays before games.

    Great classy birthday celebration of Tebow’s birthday yesterday.

    Positive article all around.

  21. ck says:

    Mets lost 4-6, unfortunately. Tebow had 4 AB & 2 SO, but still has .228. Hope he has a better game today @ 7:00 P.M. Last game away and Fri., Sat., Sun. @ Port ST. Lucie.;D

  22. TheMascotArmy says:

    Man, this is quite the slump. I’m sure it will end, but I can’t wait.
    Hopefully they’ll figure things out.

    • ck says:

      Hope he continues to stay positive in spite of all the negativity thrown his way and really believe he has a legit chance this time, TMA.

  23. Bubbaelvis says:

    They don’t have many games left. Hopefully, he can break out of it real soon.

  24. Sage says:

    I’m gathering no hits. What a struggle August has been.

    The valleys are so wide with Tim. I hope his spirits are up.

    • ck says:

      Well, don’t think that hit to the helmet/head helped much and I’m still fuming about that one…at least, they won the last game in Clearwater–YEA!

  25. David says:

    The Mets win 6-4 in 10 innings tonight. Tim was 0 for 5 with 1 SO, flied out to center and hit grounders into force outs 3 times and reached base twice. He’s batting .222
    16 games left in the season. Tebow’s average has fallen from .315 to .222 in only 22 days. He’s got to turn this around just to show that he can.

    • brandi says:

      The slump started around the same time Tim was saying he wasn’t used to playing every day. This is now 3 straight games at DH. That may indicate the Mets know he’s tired.

      It is in the Mets and Baseball’s best interest to have him called up in September. But not if he’ll just be overpowered. If he’s going to find a second wind, he needs to do so very soon. Chances are he starts next year in Binghamton pretty much whatever he does the next couple weeks.

      • ck says:

        Yea, it has been some kind of a grind, but it’s great to get updates on a daily basis and looking forward to seeing him overcome, yet, again, as usual, Brandi.
        GO TEBOW!

        • brandi says:

          This is why some say Baseball was right there every step of the way as America was being built. Radios playing in factories, on farms, construction sites, shops, everywhere as day after day, night after night Baseball in the background. Through wars, peace, depression, disease.

          Baseball was there for all of it. Good and bad. Every day. There’s no other Sport that can even begin to make that claim.

    • ck says:

      Thanks, David, for the great update. Glad they won and are heading back to Port ST. Lucie.

  26. tawk2 says:

    I agree with all, hope Tebow comes out of his slump, I am praying too. Hopefully he will end the season hitting it out of the park!

    Thanks to all here for keeping us up to date all things Tebow. Bless you all.

    Mets lose 4-0 against the Dunedin Blue Jays
    Recap
    https://www.milb.com/sl-mets/news/blue-jays-shut-out-mets-4-0/c-249277950/t-196097188
    Tebow was 0 for 3 with 1 SO and a walk. He grounded out to 1st and 2nd. The team had only 4 hits in the game.

    • Sage says:

      I haven’t paid close attention, but it seems like Mets bats disappear on a regular basis.

    • David says:

      I think it depends on the pitching that they face. But, they are not the strongest team in the league. Tim hit well for 28 games and then the whole team hit a slump. They took a day off and some of the batters recovered and others were still slumping. Most of the position players are playing less often than Tim and getting more rest. He’s in high demand by the fans.

      • Danny says:

        Like you say, Tim is in high demand and he won’t get a day off now.

        Labor Day will be the last game of the season. I just don’t think he gets called up at all this season.

        It won’t take Tim long to recover, but just needs some time off. I look for him in the AFL again in October.

        • David says:

          Yes, next season will be a better indicator of the progress he has made than what we are seeing now. This season has to be sacrificed for development, which most people predicted a year ago. But, the high points of this season were better than anyone predicted.

          • brandi says:

            There’s something else we have barely even talked about. Tim did his showcase with a torn oblique muscle. That injury is so bad for a Hitter, guys go on the Disabled List, usually the 60 Day DL, just for a strain. One Player actually switched to Pitching because it doesn’t use the same muscles.

            A tear usually puts a Player out for many months. And the only treatment is rest and time. But in Tim’s case, he was Playing not long after and working out every day. Best case, he’s been Playing in pain that puts most guys out of service. Worst case, he never let it heal right.

          • David says:

            Sometimes you need to take yourself out of the game for the good of the team. We haven’t seen him rubbing or favoring an injury in the video clips, so I hope he is ok.

          • ck says:

            Tebow sure is STOIC! Did not know he had another injury and you can’t really tell b/c he is able to overcome obstacles really well…thank, God!

  28. David says:

    Mets win 6-3
    Recap
    https://www.milb.com/sl-mets/news/mets-take-down-blue-jays-6-3/c-249482706/t-196097188
    Tim went 1 for 4 with a single to center field and reached base on an error by the 1st baseman, grounded out and 1 SO

  29. TheMascotArmy says:

    A step in the right direction!

    Brandi makes an interesting point about his possibly having been playing injured. Wouldn’t be the first time.

  30. Danny says:

    Definitely the tale of two different months: June 28 – July 29 Tim was extremely hot with Tim batting .300 in that stretch, and then since then extremely cold with only 7 hits since July 29th and only one of those an extra base hit, a double on August 4th.

    Tim will end up with about 425 AB’s this year and with the current 39 BB’s and 9 HBP’s he will be close to 500 plate appearances before the season is over. That’s not counting anything in instructional, AFL or spring training.

    We’ve seen Tebow’s potential with 5 HR’s in that first month at St. Lucie and a .300 batting average. Keep in mind he still has more HR’s than many players that have been there all season at St. Lucie.

    It’s been a long season and it’s winding down. It’s been great to see Tim back in action this year and playing consistently where we can cheer him on every day.

  31. Bubbaelvis says:

    He is really going through a tough time. Still he remains upbeat and playing hard. Baseball is a game of ups and downs but he is mentally tough. The only way to get out of a slump is to keep at it. You just grind it out, keep swinging and hopefully sooner rather then later the hits start coming again. I believe he will still finish strong.

  32. David says:

    Blue Jays win 8-0 on Sunday

    Tim was 0 for 3 with no SOs as the DH grounding out to the SS or 2nd each time.
