Just when everybody thought Tim Tebow sportsman’s career was over, the former Heisman Trophy winner and one-time NFL quarterback announced that he has plans to chase a career in professional baseball.
In case you’re wondering, this is not a case of Tebow following an odd dream and picking up a sport he’s never played. According to his agents Jimmy Sexton and Nick Khan, the 29-year old has been working out in Arizona and Los Angeles to hone his hitting and fielding skills. Despite his promising career as youngster, Tebow, who currently serves as ESPN broadcaster, has not played on a full-time basis since 2005 when he made the All-State baseball team in Florida and hit .494.
Tebow was competitive enough to make to the Big Leagues and was nearly drafted by the Los Angeles Angels, but he decided to play football for the Florida Gators, winning the Heisman Trophy in 2007 and appearing on BCS National Championship-winning teams during the 2006 and 2008 seasons. Tebow was drafted by the Denver Broncos in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft and also played for the New York Jets. He had a brief gig with the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles, but was released by both teams prior to the start of the regular season.
“Obviously we support Tim in his pursuit of a baseball career, as we have in all his ventures,” commented Tebow’s football agent, Jimmy Sexton.

Can Tebow Make it to the Big Leagues?
As expressed by ESPN insider Adam Schefter, Tebow already notified his current employer, ESPN, about his decision and said that he is planning to hold a special workout later this month where all 30 MLB teams are invited to observe him.
It all looks like a great change for Tebow, but his chances of landing a deal with big league club are thin. He’s 29 years old and that’s too old by pro baseball standards, and even if a team shows some interest, there are some questions regarding his future in the Major Leagues. Online betting site MyBookie.ag is already setting its sights on Tebow and released a series of props and odds on his potential move to the MLB. You can check them out right here:
