Tim Tebow Retires From Baseball Four Years After Joining the New York Mets

Tim Tebow‘s time on the baseball field is over.

The 33-year-old New York Mets outfielder took to Twitter on Wednesday (February 17) to announce his departure from the minor league four years after joining the team.

“I want to thank the Mets, [Team President Sandy] Alderson, the fans and all my teammates for the chance to be a part of such a great organization,” Tim first tweeted. “I loved every minute of the journey, but at this time I feel called in other directions.”

He added, “I never want to be partially in on anything. I always want to be 100% in on whatever I choose. Thank you again for everyone’s support of this awesome journey in baseball, I’ll always cherish my time as a Met!”

Tim first joined the Mets in 2016, marking his return to baseball for the first time since playing in high school.

Tim‘s return to baseball comes after his pro football career unofficially ended in 2013 when he was released from the New York Jets. He played one season as the quarterback for the Jets after two seasons with the Denver Broncos.

Tim Tebow just recently celebrated his one-year wedding anniversary with wife Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters in January.
