Tim Tebow‘s agents, Jimmy Sexton and Nick Khan, announced today that the former Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL quarterback is now actively pursuing a career in professional baseball. Of course, Tebow would not be the first star athlete to play in multiple professional sports leagues (i.e. Bo Jackson, Michael Jordan). However, this situation is a bit different.
Tim Tebow, Baseball Star?
Tebow is making this change after not playing competitive baseball for 11 years. The last time he played was in 2005, his junior year of high school. In his junior season, Tebow earned a .494 average. He accumulated four home runs and 30 RBIs, including all-state honors in the state of Florida, according to Aaron Torres of Fox Sports.
Tebow is known for trying to make comebacks, after spending two years with the Denver Broncos and one with theNew York Jets. He hasn’t played for a team since 2012, despite persistently trying to make rosters. He most recently got cut from the Philadelphia Eagles roster.
