Tebow prepped at Nease High in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., near Jackonsville, about a 3 1/2 hour drive from Port St. Lucie.

New York Mets prospect Tim Tebow hit his first career walk-off home run for the Class A St Lucie Mets Thursday night. His three home runs in St. Lucie match the total he had in Columbia over 64 games. Not much else you can ask for from a video that promises those things then delivers.

Tebow hit a walk-off home run to win Thursday night's game and has very respectable numbers so far in St. Lucie, with a.972 OPS, a.327 batting average, 10 RBIs and three home runs.

With the game tied at 4-4 in the second game of a doubleheader against the Daytona Tortugas, Tebow stepped up to the plate, and came up clutch like we know him to. Minor league teams commonly play two seven-inning games during doubleheaders.

"It was fun to celebrate with those guys", he said after the game.

Since getting called up to Advanced A ball, Tim Tebow has begun to show some progress as a baseball player. Maybe one day he will make it to the majors?

"In high school, junior year", laughed Tebow.

"The goal is just to stay behind as many balls as I can".

Tebow primarily played special teams for the Jets, throwing only eight passes for the club in 2012.

However, that offseason, Denver traded Tebow to the New York Jets, and his National Football League career came to a screeching halt.
