Tim Tebow is playing for the Double-A Binghamton Rumble Ponies this season

Former Heisman Trophy victor Tim Tebow blasted a home run Thursday on the first pitch of his first-ever Double-A at-bat, and he did it against the Portland Sea Dogs. It was reminiscent of his first at-bat previous year for the Columbia Fireflies when he launched a two-run home run.

The Ponies welcomed in the Portland Sea Dogs, and fans finally got their chance to see Tim Tebow in a Rumble Ponies jersey.

Tebow spent last season between low and high Class-A ball, batting.226 with eight homers and 52 RBI in 126 games. "He's always looking to get better", he said.

While his initial stint with the Mets during spring training was met with mixed reviews - many saw his presence and potential call-up as little more than a publicity stunt - if he can keep swinging for the fences, his Major League dream might become a reality. Alderson said the experiment wouldn't last forever, but he remained optimistic because Tebow had made "meaningful progress". I think that was something our team really fed off today, was just the energy. He works very hard at his craft, and his passion and work ethic rub off on other players. Next inning when we ran into each other in the dugout I was like, I told him "That's pretty impressive".

"A lot of people rag on him for doing what he's doing". The guy knows how to make a good first impression.
