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

Tim Tebow is showing off some impressive power hitting in his early days as a minor league baseball player.

For the second time in a week Tim Tebow has gone yard.

The 29-year-old hit a three run homer for the New York Mets' Class A affiliate the Columbia Fireflies on Sunday against the Augusta GreenJackets.

The ball barely got over the fence and even Tebow wasn't sure the ball left the yard.

The Fireflies would go on to win the game, 6-0.

As the Associated Press pointed out after his first home run, this isn't necessarily a sign that Tebow is going to be a slugger.

The former National Football League quarterback who won the Heisman Trophy at Florida homered twice in the three games he played against the Augusta GreenJacktets. His second homer as a Firefly. Michael Jordan played 127 games for the Class AA Birmingham Barons in 1994. He is hitting.250 with five RBI in three games this season. The Washington Post reported that the team averaged 6,501 fans in its opening series, compared to an average of 3,785 for all of last season.
