Tim Tebow Blasts ‘Magical’ Walk-Off Home Run

In what USA Today describes as more evidence of “Tebow Magic,” Tim Tebow blasted a walk-off home run in the bottom of the seventh inning for the Class A St. Lucie Mets.

Tebow has been on a tear since joining the club, but this new ‘magical’ moment has to be the highlight of the former NFL quarterback’s attempt to make a major league club.

He sent an 0-1 pitch over the left field wall, giving his team a 5-4 comeback victory.

Via ESPN:

Tim Tebow’s one-out, solo homer in the bottom of the seventh inning sent the Class A St. Lucie Mets to a dramatic 5-4 comeback victory Thursday night over the Daytona Tortugas.

Tebow belted the 0-1 fastball from Cincinnati Reds minor leaguer Austin Orewiler over the left-field fence, sending a crowd of 2,667 at First Data Field into a frenzy. He has hit safely in 11 straight games.

Tebow was greeted by a Gatorade shower at home plate from his teammates.

He is batting .327 with 10 RBIs since being called up to a higher skill level league. The home run puts him at the top of a list of notable two-sport stars who tried their hand at baseball.

Naturally, the media couldn’t help but take a shot at Tebow’s religion in reporting his heroics …

While liberals mock, the rest of the sports world is loving the Tim Tebow story.

Other players at this past week’s All-Star game are overwhelmingly supportive of Tebow’s efforts to make the big leagues.

“I think Tim Tebow’s a great guy,” said Colorado Rockies center fielder Charlie Blackmon. “I don’t really know him, but I think it’s a great story.”

Chicago Cubs relief pitcher Wade Davis simply cheered, “Get some, Tebow!”

The walk-off home run is yet another moment in the pro-life, pro-Christian athlete’s storied career that seems to defy logic.

Tebow switched sports after having an incredibly successful run as a Heisman winning college quarterback, but an NFL career which saw a lot of ups and downs.

He’s a favorite of our readers, a man who perpetually leads by example through a strong Christian faith. That’s why liberals can’t stand him.

Just before embarking on his baseball journey, Tebow, a man considered ‘polarizing’ by the media, demonstrated his Christian faith and charity by taking the time to visit sick kids at the Wolfson Children’s Hospital. One particular fan, his bed decked out in Florida Gators gear (where Tebow played), was overwhelmed that the famous quarterback would take the time to visit him.

He had a tough time speaking and couldn’t hold back the tears.

  • Here's the parable of Tim Tebow.

    Our professional leagues are filled the most wonderfully talented athletic champions the world has ever seen. This is where America's ethnic and racial diversity pay off. We have guys who were born to excel at their chosen sports. And they are the most privileged folks in the country, from the time their talents are recognized in grade school to their university commencement ceremony.

    But that upbringing (together with the dysfunction in which they, their friends, family & neighbors otherwise often live through) makes them into the most unbelievable head cases imaginable, outside of the Diva vocalists. They're the ones who get arrested, get addicted, commit suicide and have their careers cut short.

    Tim didn't have that level of talent. So he made up for it by out-working everyone he came across, until he reached the lofty heights where the best guys (the team stars) not only had that celestial talent, but also worked harder than anybody else too. They are the stable ones; the ones who have long careers and end up in the Hall of Fame.

    Tim easily beat out the crazy Divas, but he couldn't keep up with the stable ones. He was got rid of only because he was so enormously popular, far beyond his contribution on the field, that he became a distraction. Owners and coaches don't like distractions, so they dumped him rather than work with him.

    But they'll be a next guy, and another one after that, and on ad infinitum, who can and will take the out-work everybody route, keep his head down, and make it.

  • If I had a son and he was like Mr. Tebow...I would feel blessed. So far in his life, he has "walked the talk'. He has made his family proud and appears to be a blessing to those around him. Thank you Tim for the example you are setting.

  • I sure don't know much about Tim Tebow either but every single thing I do know is favorable. He is a great example of "good" that a person with public notoriety can express.
