Tim Tebow to be assigned to Columbia Fireflies, Mets' low-A affiliate

Tim Tebow strikes out, gets plunked in Mets debut

Noting the advanced assignment, GM Sandy Alderson noted, "We were concerned that it might be a stretch at some point, or could be a stretch, but what he's done in spring training has convinced us that this is where he should go". Nonetheless, he has acquitted himself with dignity in Grapefruit League play, getting four singles in 17 at-bats, with five strikeouts, entering Monday's start in left field against the Detroit Tigers.

"No one works harder than Tim did this Spring", said New York Mets manager Terry Collins in an interview today with Marc Carig from Newsday. What he wants is to improve.

Tebow, 29, is trying to play professional baseball as an outfielder.

He now is still working with the Mets in spring training in Florida. "I'm sure he'll be a great influence on the kids in Columbia and the fans will enjoy watching him play". The AFL annually features some of the best prospects in Minor League Baseball, primarily consisting of Double-A and Triple-A level players.

Tebow will wear his No. 15 jersey he wore as quarterback at Florida and in the National Football League when he steps on the field for the Fireflies. He played professionally for the Denver Broncos from 2010 to '11, leading them to a playoff overtime victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2011, and the New York Jets (2012). By the way, we have lots of players in our organization who are just that: organizational players. In 2009, the numbers were more modest (199 yards passing and 26 rushing), but Tebow and the Gators wrapped up their first unbeaten SEC campaign since 2006. Tebow has taken a ton of criticism from scouts who feel he has no business playing professional baseball, and Alderson acknowledged even low Class-A could be a challenge.
