With New York Mets outfielder Tim Tebow set to report to camp on Monday, get ready to add another episode to the Tebow baseball saga.
According to Marc Craig of Newsday, New York Mets outfielder Tim Tebow will be reporting to camp on Monday where he will give an introductory press conference.
However, Tebow will not be reporting to the 40-man roster side of camp. Instead, he will be heading to the side for select minor leaguers who were not invited to big league camp.
The former NFL star will be making his arrival much earlier than he is required to, as minor leaguers do not have to report to camp until Mar. 6. At least Tebow is showing he has the drive to improve by showing up early.
The left-hander is coming off a disappointing season in the Arizona Fall League where he slashed .194/.296/.242 with just three extra-base hits in 19 games.
With those type of numbers, it is unlikely Tebow sees any action in the major leagues anytime soon, but it will be interesting to see how he takes this failure and attempts to turn it into success.
