He took a 2-1 offering over the left field wall for a two-run home run.
Tebow, the former Heisman Trophy winner and Class A Columbia Fireflies player, hit the ball deep off of Augusta Green Jackets pitcher Domenic Mazza. Following the hit, the Spirit Communications Park went into a frenzy.
The home run came in the second inning. Initially, Tebow thought it was a double, before the umpire told the former football star that it was as definitely a home run.
In Spring Training with the Mets, he had a .148 batting average with just four hits.
This is Tebow’s first big baseball moment since signing with the Mets in late 2016.
The 22-year-old Mazza made 14 starts in the South Atlantic League last season. He also had a 3.93 ERA.
