  • Tim Tebow hits home run in first Double-A at-bat

Tebow got the start in left field today, and found himself batting 7th in the lineup. The only glitch in his debut came when he ran into a chain-link fence chasing a fly ball in foul territory along the left-field line in the third inning Thursday night, but he quickly shook it off.

"We were really excited to go play, and I think that's something if our team continues to do is bring that energy, it'll be contagious and we'll feed off of it", said Tebow.

The Sea Dogs opened the season in Binghamton with a game against Tebow's Rumble Ponies.

Tebow, who was promoted to Double-A despite batting.226 a year ago, attracted record-setting crowds.

Tebow launched a three-run home run in his first at-bat on the Double-A level, and finished the night 1-for-4 with the long ball.

Rumble Ponies manager Luis Rojas let us know what he said to Tim in the dugout following his home run.

Tebow delivered the biggest hit of the game.

Tebow split last season, his first in the minor leagues, between a pair of Class A teams - Columbia and St. Lucie in the Florida State League. "It's more than just the ability". He's a 30-year-old playing Double-A for the first time.
