Tim Tebow just confirmed he's better than Michael Jordan

Tebow surpassed the G.O.A.T.

Tim Tebow still believes he can be a baseball player. He was (somehow) recently promoted to advanced single-A ball despite hitting just .220 at the class below.

However in his first at bat after the promotion, Tebow smacked a home run to left-center field for his fourth home run of the season.

Tebow has officially passed one of the greatest of all time with that home run and that man is Michael Jordan.

Yes, everyone remembers Jordan's ill-fated attempt at baseball when he hit just .202 in 127 games, with just three home runs and racking up 114 strikeouts.

Tebow isn't exactly turning heads either; he's slashing .233/.325/.359 in the New York Mets' minor league system. But when he decides to hang it up, he can proudly say, "I hit more home runs than M.J."

Good for you, Tebow. Good for you.
