Tim Tebow homers twice, strikes out 5 times in 1st series

Tim Tebow was at it again on Sunday.

The former Gators QB has already hit two home runs in this very young minor league season, with his second coming on Sunday. That's the second home run in three games for Tebow.

For the season, Tebow's 12 official at-bats have yielded 2 hits, 3 runs, 5 RBI and 4 strikeouts. After blasting the ball during his first appearance at the plate, the ex-NFL star followed it up with a second home run during his third game!

Tebow, 29, is now one shy of Michael Jordan's home run total with Class AA Birmingham in 1994.

Keepers suspect April is feasting before birth
The pregnant giraffe at Animal Adventure Park had "quite an appetite" Thursday evening, a post on the park's Facebook page said. When the Animal Adventure Park in upstate NY started the YouTube live stream in February, they promised April was due any day.

Plenty of mocked Tebow for taking a shot at professional baseball, but he hasn't exactly fallen flat on his face out there.

"May we once and for all end the argument that Tebow is taking up the roster spot for a real baseball player?"

And so the question becomes when the Mets will move him up in their farm system.

The 2007 Heisman Trophy victor didn't wait to work up the count this time. He's also struck out five times and left 13 runners on base.
