Mets say Tim Tebow will be assigned to Columbia Fireflies

Tebow, the former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback, will be assigned to the Class A Columbia (S.C.) Fireflies, the Mets' lower A-ball affiliate. "We expect this to add to the energy at Spirit Communications Park and around downtown Columbia". "His humility, faith and unwavering commitment to better himself will bring a new dynamic to our clubhouse". The 29-year-old finished 4-for-14 (.286) at the plate in those three games with two walks.

New York Mets manager Terry Collins told NewsDay he was impressed during his time around Tebow this spring. Tebow has four hits (all singles) in 17 at-bats this spring in the Grapefruit League - which is actually kind of impressive - but it remains hard to envision the college football analyst playing well enough to advance this pro baseball experiment beyond Low-A ball.

Barring anything unforeseen, Tebow will wear his number 15 jersey when he steps on the field for the Fireflies. "I'm sure he'll be a great influence on the kids in Columbia and the fans will enjoy watching him play".

However, Alderson is adamant Tebow being with the Mets is not a publicity stunt.

He reported to instructional league and played in the Arizona Fall League before reporting to spring training with the Mets top prospects.

"The fact that he's starting at Columbia, he's really not taking anybody's spot".

"We're just being cautious with it", Nimmo said. He also played for the Jets and Patriots during his National Football League career. Hall of Fame inductee and Broncos General Manager John Elway-for whom Tebow played while in Denver-played in the New York Yankees minor league system. Tebow never lost to the Gamecocks while at Florida.
