Tim Tebow hits second home run for Columbia Fireflies

Tim Tebow hits second home run for Columbia Fireflies”

Tim Tebow is showing off some impressive power hitting in his early days as a minor league baseball player. The home run plated three scores for the Fireflies, increasing its lead to 6-0.

Tebow, the former National Football League quarterback who won the Heisman Trophy at Florida and is attempting a professional baseball career, hit a home run for the second time in three games against the Augusta GreenJackets on Sunday.

To those who say baseball is dead, I suppose the sport is being buried in a gold-plated casket. Overall, the Tigers are worth $1.2 billion, according to Forbes .

Even playing a different sport can't get Tebow away from the naysayers. With the victory, the Fireflies swept the four-game series. In the third, Gene Cone drove in two runs and Jacob Zanon drove in one, while Brandon Brosher hit a sacrifice fly, scoring Zanon in the fifth.

The former Heisman Trophy victor and NFL quarterback has apparently had his fill of the gridiron, exchanging his football cleats for baseball ones. His goal is to make it to the majors, but with only a few clutch plays to his name, can he do it?

Tim Tebow hit another home run Sunday, but this time he didn't have to awkwardly stop at second base. He went 1-for-3 with two runs and a walk, and is now one shy of Michael Jordan's home run total with Double A-Birmingham in 1994.

Tebow seems to be positively impacting Columbia on as well as off the field.
