Tim Tebow hits second home run - a no-doubter

Tim Terrific: Tebow homers in 1st AB as Mets minor leaguer

Tim Tebow had an incredible debut weekend with the New York Mets minor league team.

For the second time in a week Tim Tebow has gone yard.

Tebow drove home three runs to give Columbia a 6-0 lead in the fifth inning.

On Sunday, the former football star hit his second home run in his third game of the season for the Columbia (S.C.) Fireflies.

Even playing a different sport can't get Tebow away from the naysayers. The former Heisman Trophy victor left football for broadcasting after the 2012 season, before deciding to pursue a career in a sport he last played as a junior in high school.

Airstrikes on Syria might also send message to North Korea
US President Donald Trump speaks at a press conference in the Rose Garden at the White House on April 5, 2017. North Korea is not afraid of President Donald Trump's strikes on Syria, a state-run media outlet said Sunday.

Tebow managed two hits in his first 10 at-bats (along with four strikeouts). His goal is to make it to the majors, but with only a few clutch plays to his name, can he do it?

It was a three-run shot against the Augusta (Ga.) Greenjackets (really?), and the ball went well over the right-centerfield fence.

It's also worth pointing out that Tebow now has just one less home run than Michael Jordan, who left basketball to pursue baseball. After three games, his batting average is.231.

The Fireflies continue their opening homestand with a three-game set against the Hickory (North Carolina) Crawdads on Monday.
