BREAKING: Tim Tebow Signs with Mets

Former Heisman Trophy winner, Tim Tebow has officially signed a contract with a minor league baseball team. Tebow, who has not played baseball since high school, held a workout for 28 major league team scouts last month to showcase his skill, before signing with the Mets. After the workout, 8 teams were interested in Tebow, including the Atlanta Braves.

Having served as an ESPN analyst since leaving the NFL, Tebow faces an uphill battle to make the major league. Tebow will attempt to make the MLB by playing corner outfielder.
