This is such an incredible story all-around.
Fan video of a minor league baseball game featuring the St. Lucie Mets and the Charlotte Stone Crabs captured something truly amazing.
And we could all use a little something amazing these days, right?
Video shows little Seth Bosch, a 9-year-old with autism, trying to get the attention of Tim Tebow who is taking some practice cuts in the batting circle. Seth had been trying to get Tebow’s attention throughout most of the game.
Finally, it worked, as Tebow left the on-deck circle to go over and shake Seth’s hand.
The triumphant little boy raised his hand in celebration and victory. Upon returning to his seat, he was overcome with emotion and began crying.
Seth’s mom, also crying now, then predicts that Tebow will hit a home run after the exchange.
Any idea what happens next? Take a look …
Is this real life? Simply amazing!
Here is a more concise video clip with narration of the events …
“I think God brought Seth and Tim together.”

Via Fox News:
Bosh has high-functioning autism and also suffers from neurofibromatosis according to the Tampa Bay Times. The boy has a difficult time participating in sports.
“When Seth came back to his seat, he was crying,” Ileanna Bosch, Seth’s mother, told the newspaper. “And then Tim hit the homer. I started crying, too. How does that happen? I think God brought Seth and Tim together.”
Tebow’s three-run homer lifted the St. Lucie Mets to a 10-3 victory over the Charlotte Stone Crabs.
You honestly couldn’t script things any better if you tried.
The three-run dinger was Tebow’s only hit of the night in five at-bats.
After the game, Tebow took some time to meet Seth yet again!
Earlier in July, Tebow blasted a walk-off home run for the Mets club that USA Today described as “Tebow magic.”

Honestly, it’s not Tebow’s play on the diamond that makes things around him magical. It’s who he is and what he represents as a person.
