It’s been several weeks since news broke out that Tim Tebow would try his hand in Major League Baseball.
The Heisman Trophy-winner held tryouts to show his skills to over 40 MLB scouts at USC’s practice field in Los Angeles Tuesday. Tebow ran a 60-yard dash, made throws from the outfield, took flyballs and groundballs, took batting practice, and even hit live against two AAA pitchers.
Most scouts said Tebow’s power was most impressive, as he was able to hit long and hard, and come out with a solid time on the dash.
Skip Bayless, who was present for the showcase, made sure people knew this Golden Boy was able to hit a few out of the park.
If you don’t believe him, take a look at one of Tebow’s homers right here:
Other than his power, some scouts believe Tebow still needs a lot of work when it comes to his skills. Many people noticed how Tebow tripped up when the pitchers switched throws on him last minute.
Maybe the MLB might be the big time for Tebow, but he’ll definitely need to start off in a developmental league if he wants to be taken seriously.
Tebow now awaits to hear back from several MLB teams, hoping for an offer. If that doesn’t work he can take a trek to the southern hemisphere, since he already received an offer to play in the Venezuelan winter league.
