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.

While Tebow has not played organized baseball in a long time, he does have an advantage — maybe not necessarily in baseball, though. As a professional athlete in the NFL, he knows how to act.
