Tim Tebow ditching the NFL for baseball was a change that nobody saw coming.
There are many who are predicting him to fail, but he continues to push on.
And he is about to get a massive promotion that will change his life forever.
Tim Tebow isn’t one to take no for an answer.
Even after moving from the NFL to Minor League Baseball with the goal of making it into the major leagues, when virtually the entire sports world was betting on his failure, he kept pushing forward.
And now his bet is paying off, with his batting coach saying he has a great chance on making it into the major leagues this season.
As reported by Breitbart:
When former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow announced that he intended to join the minor leagues in an attempt to make it as a professional baseball player, most scoffed.
However, since then, he has wowed even the harshest critics. Prompting his hitting coach to say that the former Florida Gator has a great shot at advancing to the majors this season. Former MLB outfielder Jay Gibbons signed on to help Tebow recover his college hitting abilities and hone them for a shot at Major League Baseball, and now Gibbons is telling the Athletic that he is bullish on Tebow’s chances of hitting the big time.
“You’re talking about a guy where what we’re trying to do is very difficult to do — nearly impossible,” Gibbons said. “For him to do what he’s done already, to me, is an amazing thing. I’m not the guy that’s going to doubt Tim Tebow, with his heart and his drive. I would never doubt that guy.”
This may be a surprise to the sports world, but to those who know Tebow and his heart, it shouldn’t be surprising.
Even at great risk to his career, he has long been a vocal Christian, and a positive inspiration to millions of people.
In a recent press conference, he made his commitment to God clear, stating that only God defines him, and that his detractors don’t matter to him.
“You’re always going to have critics and naysayers and people that are going to tell you that you won’t, that you can’t, that you shouldn’t. Most of those people are the people that didn’t, that wouldn’t, that couldn’t.”
