Well, Tim Tebow may actually be a baseball player.

HIGHLIGHT: Tebow hit a two-run home run in his first plate appearance on Thursday night.

Tebow, the former Heisman Trophy victor turned longshot New York Mets prospect, hit a three-run shot in the fifth inning off Augusta Greenjackets reliever Jose Morel, a no-doubter over the fence in right center field at Spirit Communications Park.

Even playing a different sport can't get Tebow away from the naysayers.
