Tim Tebow is now one step away from Major League Baseball, and all of a sudden, the dream is starting to look more like reality.
Tebow made his debut for the Syracuse Mets (Triple-A) in their International League opener on Thursday. Fans were excited, as was he, in comments he made to John Kekis of the Associated Press.
“I enjoy the process every day, enjoy every opportunity I get,” Tebow said. “That’s one thing I take a lot of pride in — having fun and not just the destination but truly enjoying the journey.”
Tebow’s first at-bat went like a number of his others have in the past, as he struck out at the plate in the second inning.
He followed that up with a groundout.
Tebow’s going to have to raise his on-base percentage if he’s going to get called up to MLB.
