In his first at-bat as a member of the Mets’ organization, former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow drove one deep to left center. Tebow’s solo shot came from the first pitch of his professional baseball career, during Fall instructional league play.
Sean makes no apologies for being a big fan of the former footballer-turned baseball player. Several weeks ago, Sean even got into a heated debate about the former football player’s future in baseball with ESPN analyst (and friend) Stephen A. Smith on The Sean Hannity Show.
“How in God’s name did Tim Tebow, who hasn’t played baseball since high school have 46 individuals from Major League Baseball teams, from 28 different teams, come and scout him?” Smith scolded.
“First of all, he’s a phenomenal athlete than you’ve never given him credit for,” Hannity interrupted. “Secondly, you know this, too, he has worked his a$$ off. Let’s be honest here, to become an even better athlete. He tried hard to get back in the NFL.”
“He has not played baseball since high school,” Smith shot back.
“How about you give the guy a shot, isn’t this America?” Sean responded. “You believe in the American Dream, the American Dream that Barack Obama ruined for everybody?”
What say you Mr. Smith?
