Well, if your NFL career doesn’t pan out, you can always try to be a Major League Baseball player. At least, that’s what Tim Tebow thinks.

 

As he is currently working as an ESPN broadcaster, Tebow, 29  has plans to workout for MLB team’s later this month.

Apparently fort he last year, he has been working out in Arizona and Los Angeles to improve his baseball skills. He was an all-state baseball player in high school. He hit .494 as a high school junior but has not played baseball full-time since 2005.

 

“Obviously we support Tim in his pursuit of a baseball career, as we have in all his ventures,” said  Jimmy Sexton his agent. 

All 30 MLb teams will be invited to his workout. He had worked out with the LA Dodgers this preseason but even as interest was shown from the team it did not go anywhere.

 

Tom Kotchman was with the Los Angeles Angels when it was attempted to get Tebow to choose baseball over football.

“We wanted to draft him, but he never sent back his information card,” Kotchman said “Who knows if it got to him, and if it did we just never got it back. Otherwise we were going to take him.”

 

Tebow won the Heisman Trophy  in 2007 and two national championships at Florida in football.
