New York Mets prospect Tim Tebow showcases a little magic by homering in his first at-bat in single-A ball with the Columbia Fireflies.

When was the last time a single-A level home run turned into national news? Perhaps when Michael Jordan was wasting away in the minors? No, could be. He mainly played at the double-A level.

It’s probably never happened … until, now.

New York Mets prospect Tim Tebow has smacked a home run in his first at-bat in single-A ball with the Columbia Fireflies:

The Mets prospect barely cleared the fence with the opposite-field shot, his first career professional homer.

As far as the big club is concerned, Matt Harvey was cruising until Matt Kemp smacked a solo shot in the fifth inning, providing the Atlanta Braves with the 1-0 lead. That’s where the two teams stand at the current moment.
