Tim Tebow To Start Season With Mets’ Double-A Team

Tim Tebow is taking another big step in his journey to the majors as he will start the season with the  New York Mets’ Double-A affiliate in Binghamton, the team officially announced.

Tebow, who is entering his 2nd season with the organization, says that he is “excited” about heading to the Double-A affiliate.

“I’m excited to take the next step in my baseball career by playing for the Rumble Ponies,” Tebow said (h/t ESPN). “I look forward to getting to play in front of the Binghamton fans and around the Eastern League.”

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson recently said that he thought Tebow would make it to the majors one day and there is a good chance he could make that jump late in the season, should his numbers continue to improve.

Last year, Tebow hit .226 with eight home runs and 52 RBI in 126 games while splitting time between two levels of Class A ball.
