Reports: Tim Tebow signs to play baseball for NY Mets

Publish date:

Tim Tebow won't be playing for Minnesota.

Just a week after his private workout for Major League scouts, Tim Tebow is playing pro baseball. Several sources report Tebow will sign a minor league deal with the New York Mets.

The Minnesota Twins were among the teams scouting Tebow last month.

Tebow hasn’t played organized baseball since he was in high school, but the L.A. Times reported that Tebow would have been drafted out of high school as a junior had he entered his name into the draft.

The Pioneer Press said the St. Paul Saints were also interested in signing Tebow if MLB clubs passed on him.
