Former NFL Quarterback Tim Tebow to Pursue MLB Career

Tim Tebow is smart enough and talented enough to do whatever he chooses in life, and professional athlete seems to be that calling.

Rather than get comfortable analyzing college football or making a full-on run for President, the former Heisman Trophy winner is reportedly turning his attention to baseball and the major leagues.

Before you laugh, understand that Tebow is a legend of sorts on the baseball diamond as well and reportedly the Los Angeles Angels wanted to draft the three-sport star out of high school.

Tebow hit .494 as a junior while leading Nease High School to the final four of the Florida state playoffs, earning all-state honors along the way. His coach believes he could have been a star in that sport as well.

“I believe he could have played in the big leagues,” said Nease coach Greg “Boo” Mullins, who called Tebow a “six-tool player” and a potential Round 7-to-12 draft pick.

“He had a strong arm and had a lot of power,” said Red Sox Florida scout Stephen Hargett, who worked with Kotchman with the Angels. “He had leverage to his swing. He had some natural loft. He had some good power. He was a good athlete. He had enough arm for that position. He was a left-handed hitter with strength and some size. He stood out. He was bigger and stronger than everybody. … It was just easy for him. You thought, if this guy dedicated everything to baseball like he did to football, how good could he be?”

Tebow opted for football because “he just had a bigger fire” for the sport, his old coaches say. Now those wacky mechanics could lead to something extraordinary.
