Tim Tebow hits home run in first Double-A at-bat

Tim Tebow hits home run in first Double-A at-bat

Former Heisman Trophy victor Tim Tebow blasted a home run Thursday on the first pitch of his first-ever Double-A at-bat, and he did it against the Portland Sea Dogs.

The former two-time Heisman Trophy victor started his minor league baseball career past year with a home run in his first at-bat with the Single-A Columbia Fireflies.

Tebow led the Rumble Ponies to a 6-0 win against the Portland Sea Dogs for Binghamton's first win of the season.

Lourdes Gurriel hit a pair of doubles for two runs batted in, and Cavan Biggio added a pair of hits for two RBIs, leading the Fisher Cats to a 6-0 victory over the Yard Goats in Hartford, Conn. Here's another look at Thursday's homer.

The Sea Dogs opened the season in Binghamton with a game against Tebow's Rumble Ponies.

This season, Tebow was promoted to Class AA despite going just 1-for-18 in spring training. Alderson said the experiment wouldn't last forever, but he remained optimistic because Tebow had made "meaningful progress".

"He's another ballplayer. I understand all the excitement because it's Tim Tebow", Wilpon said. He works very hard at his craft, and his passion and work ethic rub off on other players.

"I was pretty cynical", he said.

"A lot of people rag on him for doing what he's doing".
