Well this was just bound to happen, wasn’t it?
Today, Tim Tebow – who recently signed a Minor League contract with the New York Mets – hit an opposite field home run on the first pitch, of the first at-bat in his professional career. Sure, it’s just the instructional leagues, but that’s a real pitcher standing opposite him and he just took him deep to left-center field.

As I said, the homer came on the first pitch of his very first at bat (so much for patience … what a bust), which should probably come as a surprise to no one. He still has quite a ways to go, before ever playing Major League Baseball, but he’s officially on his way.
