Tim Tebow is kicking off his professional baseball career with a bang!

The game was against the St. Louis Cardinals’ team.

Tim‘s teammates rushed onto the field to meet him at home plate.

In his second at-bat, he grounded into a double play and finished the game 1 for 6.

    I’m starting to lose my interest in Tebow because of his ineptness at professional sports! At first I thought he was being blackballed by the NFL for some obscure reason, but now have to admit maybe their reason is not all that ‘obscure’ and he really is not as talented as we thought!
