Tim Tebow smacks home run during his MLB showcase
LOS ANGELES — Former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL quarterback Tim Tebow, 29, showcased his baseball skills to 28 of the 30 MLB organizations Tuesday afternoon, according to ESPN.com.
Scouts’ reviews were mixed on Tebow’s performance, some saying he’s was in incredible shape and commending his speed and power, while others were unenthused with his defensive performance, saying he looked stiff.
During his showcase, which consisted of a 60-yard dash, two outfield tests, batting practice and “live batting practice,” Tebow did crush a pitch approximately 430-feet over the right field fence.
Like him or not, one home run is impressive, let alone a 430-foot blast.
Now, Tebow just has to hope he impressed the scouts enough for a chance.
