Former NFL star Tebow hits homer on baseball debut (AFP)

Former Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow’s fledgling baseball career got off to a flying start with a home run on his first at bat in an instructional game. Tebow, who has signed a minor-league deal with the New York Mets, smacked the homer in an instructional league game against the St Louis Cardinals in Florida. It was Tebow’s first actual game since he was scooped up by the Mets following a tryout in Los Angeles last month.
