Tebow time continues to tick, bats .750 with 2 runs in Class A game

Tim Tebow leads team to victory 5-0 after racking up three hits, two runs and a triple Wednesday.

Class A minor league baseball slugger Tebow, for the Columbia Fireflies, stepped up big in Wednesday’s game versus the Asheville Tourists. Hitting three of four at bats, including a triple, Tebow also scored two runs to lift the Fireflies to an 11-8 record. He also rose his batting average from .213 to .246 with his .750 single game batting average.

“He has been able to get his foot down on time, working on his timing, and it is finally paying off. He is more consistent,” Fireflies manager Jose Leger said, according to The State. “When you get a couple hits and find that rhythm at the plate, your confidence also grows. That is what has been happening.”

With Tebow’s hot hitting and break out performance thus far, getting called up is something that could possibly be happening soon.

“It is hard to predict when it happens,” Leger said in regards of call-ups. “A lot depends on what is happening in the level above. Whenever they decide it, he will be ready. He is just working hard, and we are going day by day.”
