Tim Tebow wasted no time.
On the first pitch of his first at-bat for his first minor league baseball game, the former quarterback hit a home run.
He has the clutch gene!

Tebow hit the ball out of the park for the New York Mets instructional league team, which is based in Port St. Lucie, Florida. Andwith Tim Tebow being Tim Tebow, the home run had people going crazy on Twitter.

Normally, a home run in an instructional league game would not be news in fact, some people probably didnt even know the instructional league existed but Tebows not a normal guy.
Prior to Wednesday, the former Heisman Trophy winner had not played an organized game of baseball since his junior year of high school. In fact, the 29-year-old had not played in a non-exhibition professional sports game since 2012.
