Knee down, Bats up

Please drop a knee and Te-bow your head.

Let us pray.

Tim Tebow has decided to attempt a career in major league baseball.

In 2010, Tebow was selected 25th overall by the Denver Broncos after a trade with the Baltimore Ravens. The then Broncos head coach, Josh McDaniels, saw something in the 2007 Heisman winner that he had hoped to continue polishing. The same man who trained quarterbacks like Tom Brady and  Matt Cassel, never saw this vision come to fruition.

The “Chosen One” has found a new calling.

Tebow would stay in Denver for one more season before being shipped to the NY Jets. His time on the east coast was even less productive, subsequently landing practice squad stints in New England and Philadelphia.

After realizing his three-season NFL career had burned to ashes, the former Florida gator has been spending his days as a college football analyst at ESPN.

The appointed time has come.

The phoenix has been reborn as he decides to attempt professional sports once again. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Tebow has been in Scottsdale, Ariz., and Los Angeles preparing for his resurrection as an MLB star.

Former World Series champ turned sports agent, Gary Sheffield, took to twitter to express his faith in Tebow

Tebow has not formally played baseball since his high school days in 2004. During his junior year at Allen D. Nease High School he hit .494, a strong contribution to the team’s appearance in the Florida final four that season.

The last big name to attempt this kind of transition was one of the greatest at his first sport and failed, but who is to say that Tebow cannot do what Michael Jordan couldn’t?

Tebow has already been offered a deal from an independent Frontier League team, the Schaumburg Boomers, based in Illinois.

At the end of the month, all 30 MLB teams will be invited to watch him workout but only time will tell if this new union can lead to a fruitful relationship.

Of course, if that doesn’t work out, there’s always basketball

In the name of old quarterbacks and new beginnings all who agree say, “Amen.”
