Watch Tim Tebow homer on first pitch in Double-A

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

Tim Tebow made his Double A debut with the Rumble Ponies by hitting a monster three-run homer. That shot also was part of his team's dominant shutout victory.

Tebow, who arrived in town on Monday, started in left field against Portland and batted seventh.

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

Portland starter Teddy Stankiewicz issued a pair of two-out walks later in the inning and paid the price. That shot would put three runs on the board for Binghamton.

NYSEG stadium employees had plenty to do to prepare for the Rumble Ponies' season opener on Thursday, as they worked to prepare the baseball field as well plenty of food for the large crowd. They scored all of their runs in the first two innings that he pitched. Other fans tweeted about the big news, including how well the season has started out for the Mets overall.

The home run was the only hit of the game for Tebow, who finished 1 for 4. Back in February, New York Mets manager Sandy Alderson predicted it will happen.

"He's another ballplayer. I understand all the excitement because it's Tim Tebow", Wilpon said before the game.

"It's pretty special and it feels really good", a smiling Tebow said afterward. "But baseball's a game where it's never too high, it's never too low". It's just one at-bat, just one pitch. You've got to stay focused.

"But from the first time I saw him to this spring he's made some nice improvements. I've got to get back in the cage and work ... on all the things that I've been working on to try to improve".
