Tim Tebow is back. This time with a bat and ball.

The 2007 Heisman trophy winner and former NFL quarterback is preparing for workouts with Major League Baseball scouts, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. His agent says this is no joke or sideshow.

Tebow hasn't played baseball since 2004 when he was a high school junior. Tebow hit .494 at Nease High in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. And he's been training for the past several months in suburban Phoenix and Los Angeles.

Tebow has enlisted help from former major league catcher Chad Moeller. The former Detroit Tiger told USA Today that Tebow "has the skill set and potential to achieve his goal of playing in the major leagues."

Since leaving the NFL in 2012, Tebow has worked in broadcasting as a football analyst and in the reality show "Home Free."

Within the next few weeks, Tebow's workout reportedly will take shape in which all 30 major league teams will be invited. The news is also serving up easy swats for Tebow watchers.
