Tim Tebow. Home run. First at-bat. Need we say more?

Tebow actually hitting a home run in his first at-bat with the Atlanta Braves' Class A affiliate is pretty remarkable considering he left spring training with a .148 batting average. But the man did it – just like he homered on the first pitch of his first professional at-bat last September.

The rest of Tebow's night wasn't as good. According to USA Today, the former NFL quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner grounded out and then struck out three times.

More importantly, in the fight between good versus evil, Tebow hit his home run off the guy who was the 666th pick in the 2015 MLB Draft, according to a reporter from the New York Times. The number 666 is often referred to as the "mark of the beast."

Tebow wins. Good wins. You cannot make this stuff up.
