Tim Tebow's minor-league baseball season ends quietly

USA TODAY - Tim Tebow went 0 for 3 in his final minor-league game of 2017 on Sunday.

The former Heisman Trophy winner finished with a .226 average in his first full year as a professional ballplayer. Tebow had eight home runs, 52 RBIs, 43 walks and 126 strikeouts.

“In looking back, it’s a lot of ups and downs, a lot of learning moments,” Tebow told TCPalm.com last week. “Almost every day there’s something I’ve never been through before that you’re learning, whether it’s something on base or something in the outfield or something at the plate. Or it’s getting to go over something again because of the way someone’s pitching you.”

Tebow, 30, began the season with the Columbia Fireflies (S.C) in Class A before he was moved to the Mets' High-A affiliate in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

With virtually no chance for a Mets call-up to the majors, the next time you’ll see Tebow will likely be on SEC Network analyzing college football.
