WATCH: Former Gators QB Tim Tebow hits home run in minor league debut

Former Florida Gators quarterback Tim Tebow has been clowned left and right since retiring from football and deciding to give baseball — a sport he had not played since high school — a try.

And some of that clowning has been legitimate as Tebow has at times looked awful playing baseball, though that is to be expected — particularly when going against some of the best pitchers in the game.

No one was laughing on Thursday night, though, as Tebow hit an opposite-field two-run homer in his very first minor league at bat. Tebow, who is starting in left field, made his debut with the Columbia Fireflies of the South Atlantic League, a New York Mets affiliate.

Though Tebow is now officially in the minor league system, he will return to the SEC Network this fall for his broadcasting responsibilities.

    The non-stop, giddy, communal, media feeding-frenzy verbal abuse of Tebow, where they sit around cackling idiotically at each other’s lame jokes about Tim, has caused me to stop listening to sports talk radio and to stop watching certain TV sports programs. Yes, it is their constitutional right to trash him at every opportunity. . and it is my right to not listen to or watch those jackasses.

    Go Tebow!! Go Gators!!!
