Tim Tebow is officially a Firefly! He was assigned by the Mets organization to their single A affiliate, the Columbia Fireflies in Columbia, South Carolina. Which means he’ll be making a trip to Jersey! The Fireflies visit the Lakewood BlueClaws in New Jersey for a four game series May 13 – 16.
Tebow is batting .235 in Spring Training and it remains to see what kind of ball player he can become. This season he’ll get his test at the single A level and it will be fun to follow his progression. It will also be interesting to see what kind of draw he will be at the minor league level. I would think that the first two games of the series in Lakewood, on the weekend, would draw a lot of fans who want to get a peek of the Heisman Trophy winner’s game. So get your tickets early.
