Tebow blasts three-run homer on first pitch with Mets' affliliate

Tebow blasts three-run homer on first pitch with Mets' affliliate

Tebow batted seventh and started in left field for Binghamton Thursday against the Portland Sea Dogs, the Double-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox.

Teddy Stankiewicz struggled as Portland's starting pitcher. Drew Gagnon started for the Ponies and gave up just two hits in six innings of work. He hit a three-run home run his first time up for the Double-A Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

Tebow's blast capped off a five-run first inning for the Rumble Ponies. And his Rumble Ponies debut was one to remember.

Michael Jordan was 31 years old when he played one season of Double-A ball for the Birmingham Barons in 1994.

"Any time you have support, our entire team is feeling really good", Tebow said. The energy from each other, from the fans.

"Knowing that in every first at-bat that he's gotten in his professional career, he's done the same thing".

The game was also Darren Fenster's first as Sea Dogs manager after replacing Carlos Febles.

First pitch is set for 7:05 pm.
