    Tebow seems to be getting the hang of this baseball thing. While he has a long way to go still, its interesting to see his progress despite being away from the game for so long.

    A couple of recent quotes on his progress:

    Per Met's beat reporter Anthony DiComo:

    "Tim Tebow's last 10 games at Double-A Binghamton: .333/.429/.567, 2 HR, 2 BB, 11 K . Overall, Tebow is batting .260/.342/.452. His .794 OPS ranks 22nd in the Eastern League, ahead of Top 100 prospects Bo Bichette, Austin Hays and other notables".

    Per Milb.com:

    "Though the former University of Florida signal caller did homer in his first at-bat for the Rumble Ponies this season -- something he has now done in three stops since starting his baseball journey in 2016 -- he found himself hitting just .214 over his first 12 games.

    As adjustments would have it, Tebow has hit .290 in the 19 games since, stroking three home runs and driving in 11 while scoring nine times.

    In 13 May games, he has four multi-hit performances, a .310 batting average and a 1.002 OPS."

    Anyone know how he's doing in the field? I'm assuming, since it isn't brought up much, it's adequate but not spectacular.
