Tim Tebow was cut by the New York Jets, but is now going to play baseball for the Los Angeles Angels.
In 2011, he was the hottest name in football, for his “Tebowing” and for leading the Denver Broncos into the playoffs.
Before the 2012 season, he was traded to the New York Jets — putting him in the middle of the brightest of the media’s spotlights.
Now, quarterback Tim Tebow has been cut after just one season as a little-used backup with the Jets and in a move that shocked the sports world – he has signed to play baseball with the Los Angeles Angels.
Angels owner, Artie Moreno, personally made the decision to sign Tebow.
It was Moreno who orchestrated the Angels’ mammoth free-agent signings of first baseman Albert Pujols and outfielder Josh Hamilton in the past two off-seasons. And he knows how to bring attention to his ballclub.
Tebow has never played baseball in his life (except once in fifth grade), but Moreno feels that Tebow is a perfect fit for the team and seems him as a back-up centerfielder.
“Arite wants Tebow in the outfield. He thinks that Tebow is fast and strong and most of all… he’ll fill the seats.”
Tebow is thrilled to join the ballclub and believes that God will help him score runs for the team.
Tebow will join the Angels when they play the Oakland A’s in Oakland tonight.
