What has the Heisman Trophy winner turned pro football player turned minor league baseball player done now, you ask? Well, he made a young autistic fan’s night by taking time out of the game to greet him, then proceeded to hit a home run. All in a day’s work for Tebow.
It happened on the evening of July 29th as Tebow’s team, the St. Lucie Mets, took on the Charlotte Stone Crabs. One young fan, Seth Bosch, took advantage of a brief delay in the game to wave at Tebow, who was in the batter’s box, and summon him over for a handshake. When Tebow got to the plate, he proceeded to hit a home run.
Because that’s what Tim Tebow does.
Seth is on the autism spectrum and suffers some other medial issues that make it hard for him to play sports. But he’s definitely a fan of Tebow’s, and, as the video shows, was emotional about their encounter. Luckily, Seth’s mom got the entire thing on video.
