Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow is better at baseball than 99% of the general population. However, there are only about 5,200 people who play full-time professional baseball at any level in the United States, and that works out to be less than one one-hundreth of one percent of the general population. So being in the 99th percentile? Unfortunately that is still not good enough.

But hey, don’t be too sad, Tebow fans. Sure, Tebow went in to Thursday night’s game against the Salt River Rafters batting .120 in 25 Arizona Fall League plate appearances. But look at this!

That’s right, Tebow got a base hit! Then he stole second base and scored on a home run by Yankees prospect Gleyber Torres. And when he got to the dugout? Awe yeah boy he got a high five!


So now Tebow has four hits in 28 at-bats for a batting average of .143. That’s an improvement!

It’s not a meaningful improvement, and there’s still no way he’ll ever crack a big league lineup, let alone a double-A lineup. But at least he’s out there hustling and, I don’t know, testifying to the power of Christ’s love, or whatever.
