The Columbia Fireflies, the New York Mets’ Single-A South Atlantic League affiliate, announced yesterday that Tim Tebow will meet with the media today at 5:00 p.m. at Spirit Communications Park.
One conceivable scenario includes a demotion to the Brooklyn Cyclones, New York’s short-season A affiliate in the New York-Penn League.
Since the Cyclones draw well on their own, they wouldn’t need Tebow’s star power to draw more fans.
Another possible situation is that, since the ex-Heisman trophy winner is batting only .226 with three home runs and 16 RBI in 168 at-bats in 49 games, he might call it quits. But that doesn’t seem likely.
However, I’m just speculating at this point. Tebow has had stretches in which he’s hit well.
Possible landing spots include his home state of Florida, where the outfielder is considered god-like, to suit up for the High-A Port St. Lucie Mets, or the Double-A Binghamton Rumble Ponies.
We’ll find out soon enough. Stay tuned.
