Remember when New York Mets prospect Tim Tebow hit a home run in his first swing in an instructional league a couple weeks back? It’s been all down hill since. Tebow is 0-for-12 in the Arizona Fall League so far, which
Tim Tebow strikes out in the seventh. Now 0-for-12 with 5 Ks in the Arizona Fall League.

Honestly, I cannot help but root for Tebow to find some success, because it is hard to argue it would not be a fantastic story. Obviously, you don’t want to see this help a division rival (especially the Mets) in any way, but we all pretty much know this Tebow baseball experiment is not likely to go very far. You have to wonder if a poor showing in the AFL will bring an early end to this whole adventure for Tebow.
