Tim Tebow selected to Double-A All-Star game

Mets prospect Tim Tebow is officially an All-Star. 

The 30-year-old outfielder, who is playing for the Double-A Binghamton Rumble Ponies, made the roster for the Eastern Division All-Star team.

In his first 67 games with the Mets’ Double-A affiliate team, Tebow is hitting .261 with five home runs and 30 RBIs. He has had a strong month of June, batting .318 with a home run and 11 RBIs. 

Tebow, a former NFL quarterback, has been making a run at making into into the major leagues. At the beginning of the season Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said he thought Tebow had a strong shot at making it. 

“This experiment is not going to last forever, but he’s made meaningful progress,” Alderson said in February, via Newsday. “Somebody asked me whether I think he’ll be a major-league player at some point. I think he will play in the major leagues. That’s my guess.”

The Eastern League All-Star game will take place on Wednesday, July 11.
