Dean James AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

Tim Tebow has had the odds stacked against him. From the doctors who urged his mother to abort him to enduring ridicule and scorn from the oh-so-tolerant left for his religious convictions, Tebow has had an uphill battle in many ways.

The former pro NFL quarterback signed with the New York Mets baseball organization in September and spent time in the Florida Instructional League and the Arizona Fall League.

But things are looking up for Tebow- The New York Mets are promoting Tim Tebow from low-A ball to St. Lucie of the high-A League.

Hell yeah! Of course Tebow hopes he ultimately ends up at Citi Field in New York playing in the big leagues.

ESPN reports that Mets general manager Sandy Alderson announced the move prior to the major league club’s game in San Francisco.

“It’s not like he’s tearing up the league, but at the same time, all of the indications are positive in terms of various things we look at: chase rates and exit velocity,” Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said. “The bottom line is the average isn’t there, but he’s improving.”

“Clearly, it’s a step up,” Alderson said. “I certainly think he can handle it.”

Tebow is happy to be headed back to the Sunshine State, where he has family, friends and many, many supporters in Gator colors.

“I obviously love Florida, so this is nice,” Tebow said. “But the goal and focus is improving as a baseball player.”

Tebow certainly looked comfortable in the Fireflies’ clubhouse, despite his being a decade older than several of his teammates.

“We’ve said he’s just one of 25 guys,” Columbia president John Katz said. “At the end of the day, he really is. He wants to succeed. He puts in the work, and hopefully, he’ll have continued success at a higher level.”

“I wouldn’t say he has excelled” at Columbia, Alderson said. “But at the same time, what he’s done there — given all the circumstances — justified the promotion.”

“I’m part of the Mets family. For me, success is going to be defined by giving it everything I have and being the best I can be.” ~Tim Tebow

Tebow won the Heisman Trophy with the Florida Gators and helped the team win two national championships. He played professionally for the Denver Broncos from 2010 to ’11 and led the team to a playoff overtime victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2011 before joining the New York Jets in 2012.

Tebow spent time in training camps with the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles in 2013 and 2015, respectively, but he never played in the regular season for those teams.

We are big fans of Tim Tebow here at AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS and we wish him the very best.

Colin Kaepernick? He can rot in hell.
