Tim Tebow Shows Positive Signs In MLB Showcase (Report)
Brett Davis, USATSI

Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow has taken a positive step forward, showcasing potent baseball skills to scouts from 27 MLB teams.

Although there is no way to indicate whether anything will come of Tim Tebow’s major league baseball attempt, he is certainly off to a fast start.

According to Doug Miller of MLB.com, the 29-year-old blasted five home runs during batting practice in his showcase, with a few of them reportedly traveling impressive distances.

Additionally, the former QB did a 60-yard dash which featured a finish time of approximately 6.7 seconds. That was perhaps the most intriguing part of the of the day.

He then proceeded to take fly balls and make throws to each base, which, by the looks of it, had its ups and downs. Tebow apparently struggled with his attempted throws from right field to third base, known as one of the more demanding positional endeavors.

It should be interesting to see what the scouts make of the showcase. More interesting should be if any organizations come calling. The tail-end of the day may provide more information as to just how legitimate he is.
