Tim Tebow: World Series Title ‘Would Mean More’ Than Winning The Super Bowl
After a failed NFL career, former QB Tim Tebow took his talents to the Baseball world. The New York Mets shocked the world when they signed him to a Minor League deal to play for the Scottsdale Scorpions, one of the New York Mets’ minor-league affiliates in the Arizona Fall League.
“While I and organization are mindful of the novel nature of this situation, this decision was strictly driven by baseball,” Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said. “It is not driven by marketing considerations or anything sort.”
Starting his professional baseball career at age 29 makes it that much harder for Tebow to ever get on a spot on a Major League squad. For that reason alone, Tebow thinks a World Series title would mean so much more than winning a Super Bowl.
“I think because of the ups and the downs and just the battle of picking something up that you haven’t done in 12 years, I think it would mean more,” Tebow told Sports Illustrated’s Maggie Gray.
In his first stint in the Arizona Fall League, Tebow slashed 194/.296/.242 with a 28.6 percent strikeout rate in 70 plate appearances.
