Tim Tebow hit an opposite-field home run in his first at bat as a professional baseball player in the New York Mets instructional league.
The Mets signed Tebow after he worked out for 28 of the 30 MLB teams during a showcase on Aug. 30. He last played organized baseball in his junior year in high school. He has repeatedly said that he had offers to play in the NFL at other positions but not at quarterback and he refused.
