Mets invite Tim Tebow to spring training

Mets invite Tim Tebow to spring training

The former National Football League quarterback is slated to appear with the Mets during spring training this year, extending what initially looked like an ill-fated career choice for at least one more season.

An invitation to the Mets major league camp guarantees Tebow nothing more than a chance to begin spring training playing with the club's big-leaguers, which in turn will likely boost attendance to the Mets' spring training games in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

We are getting closer to Spring and that means Baseball Season and Spring Training are around the corner.

It looks like the New York Mets are not giving up on Tim Tebow.

He participated in the Mets' minor league spring training a year ago, but did appear in nine Grapefruit League games, going 4-for-27 (.148) with no extra-base hits and eight strikeouts.

In August, Tebow, 30, said he learned a lot during his first season of professional baseball. Tebow, who is definitely not expected to make the Mets' major league roster on opening day, would be one of them.

That said, if you are cynical about the Mets' belief in Tebow as a potential player in the majors, this looks an bad like a PR stunt. While he was not an invitee to spring training a year ago, he did appear in some spring games for the Mets, where he did not play particularly well but did serve to drum up interest in the games. He batted a cumulative.226/.309/.347 with eight home runs and a.656 OPS in 486 plate appearances for Single-A Columbia and High-A St. Lucie in 2017.
