Mets invite Tebow to spring training

The New York Mets invited minor league outfielder Tim Tebow to spring training on Thursday.

Tebow, a Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback who played three seasons in the NFL, was one of 13 Mets farmhands who received invitations to attend next month’s workouts in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

Tebow, 31, is hoping for better results this time around after going 1 for 18 with 11 strikeouts in seven games during spring training last year.

Tebow spent the 2018 season at Double-A Binghamton, batting .273 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 84 games. He made the Eastern League All-Star team, but his season ended in July with a broken bone in his right hand.

Last month, Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said Tebow would start the 2019 season with Triple-A Syracuse.
