New York Mets prospect Tim Tebow makes an autistic boy’s day by greeting him prior to smacking a three-run home run.
There are some things that you just can’t make up, and New York Mets prospect Tim Tebow recently made a fan’s day at a game.
In the top of the seventh inning of the St. Lucie Mets game against the Charlotte Stone Crabs on Jul. 29, Tebow was in the on-deck circle and a fan Seth Bosch, who was nine at the time, wanted to meet him. Bosch has high-functioning autism, neurofibromatosis, and has a tumor behind his right eye. During a conference on the mound, Bosch made his way to the backstop netting near the on-deck circle.
Bosch then started to wave at Tebow to get him to come over. The Mets prospect came over and the two shook hands. Seth’s mother Ileanna captured the interaction on video and posted it on her Facebook page. After the interaction, Tebow went to hit and hit a three-run home run.

The man is simply magic.
“When Seth came back to his seat, he was crying,” Ileanna told Martin Fennelly of the Tampa Bay Times. “And then Tim hit the homer. I started crying, too. How does that happen? I think God brought Seth and Tim together.”
After the game, Tebow and Seth met again and Ileanna took pictures of them. Tebow, looks like you just made yourself a fan for life.
