Last night, Mets minor league outfielder Tim Tebow made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. During the interview, Tebow discussed the Super Bowl, fan tattoos, his foundation, and his baseball career goals:
The quote that is grabbing the headlines is Tebow’s saying, “The goal is to get the majors for sure.”
Likely, this quote is grabbing headlines because many see Tebow as a side-show. In the interview, Tebow acknowledges people don’t believe in him, but the 30-year-old is out to prove everyone wrong. To that end, despite being 30 years old, a Heisman Trophy winner, and a first round pick of the Denver Broncos, Tebow is just like any other minor league player.
If Tebow does want to make it to the Majors, he is going to need to make significant strides over his 2017 season. He will soon get the chance to prove himself all over again as the Mets invited him to Spring Training as a non-roster invitee.
