Te­bow sharp be­fore in­struc­tional league de­but

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

For­mer Heis­man Tro­phy win­ner Tim Te­bow recorded a pair of hits, scored a run and ended the game with a slid­ing grab in his fi­nal in­trasquad game in the New York Mets’ in­struc­tional league.

Te­bow, who is sched­uled to play his first game on Wed­nes­day, sin­gled in his fi­nal two at-bats in Tues­day’s sim­u­lated game.

Af­ter strik­ing out swing­ing in the first in­ning, the left fielder looped a sin­gle to shal­low cen­ter field in the sec­ond on a hit that barely eluded a div­ing catch by short­stop Hansel Moreno, de­light­ing the cou­ple hun­dred fans in at­ten­dance.

He scored on a throw­ing er­ror by Moreno.

Te­bow fol­lowed that in the third with a sharp grounder in the hole be­tween the third base­man and short­stop.

He laid out for the game’s fi­nal out on a fly­ball in the gap be­tween him and cen­ter field. He snared the ball on a back­handed play, his sec­ond putout of the day.
