Tim Tebow did not get an invitation to the New York Mets’ major league spring training camp, despite his manager’s wishes.
Instead, he will report to the Mets’ minor-league camp in Port St. Lucie, Fla. to continue his pursuit of a major league career. Tebow was omitted from the list of major league camp invitees announced by the Mets on Wednesday.
At last month’s winter meetings, manager Terry Collins expressed his desire about having Tebow at spring training.
“I will tell you if he’s not in our camp, I’ll get him over,” Collins said. “I think he’s a name in Florida. He’s a star in Florida. He should be. I think it would be fun to have Tim come over. And certainly one thing about our players, they’re athletes, too. They’re fans, too. They would probably like to know how to run a quarterback sneak one day.”
