In the bottom of the seventh inning of Thursday’s doubleheader between the Daytona Tortugas and St. Lucie Mets, Tim Tebow blasted a walk-off home run and extended his hitting streak to 11 games.

You better start preparing for Tim Tebow’s Mets debut. The 29-year-old deposited an opposite field jack with one out in the bottom of the seventh inning against Daytona, lifting St. Lucie to a 5-4 victory.

As you’d imagine, his teammates were armed and ready to celebrate as he rounded the bases.

After going 2-for-5 in today’s doubleheader, Tebow is now riding an impressive 11-game hitting streak. Over 15 games with St. Lucie, he’s hitting .326 with three home runs and 10 RBI.

Tebow is one of those athletes that elevates his game under pressure. After receiving praise from multiple MLB All-Stars on Tuesday night, the Tebow haters were out in force.

Two nights later, the right fielder once again silenced his detractors. Tebow continues to rake and has proven that he is much more than just a “publicity stunt.” He might actually be a ballplayer.
