To paraphrase one Neil Young: Hey hey, my my, the Tim Tebow story will never die.
Just when we thought it was safe to move on with our lives and let Tebow’s baseball dreams die a quiet death after his time in the Arizona Fall League, he goes and does this.
Tebow, a 29-year-old man playing Single A minor league ball, an opportunity that’s pretty much never afforded any non-celebrity players, had his first game today.
… in his first at-bat for the Columbia Fireflies, he hit a home run.
No, for real. We’re not kidding.
This actually happened.
He should’ve Tebowed at home plate, though. That would’ve been tight. Never forget Tebowing.

In his first at bat Tim Tebow hit a home run. ESPN will dedicate the 7 days of programming dissecting the hit.

How do you explain the unexplainable? Sometimes, kids, you just have to sit back in disbelief.
