The Mets today announced that outfielder Tim Tebow is retiring from professional baseball. Here is part of the statement that was released today:
“It has been a pleasure to have Tim in our organization as he’s been a consummate professional during his four years with the Mets,” said Team President Sandy Alderson. “By reaching the Triple-A level in 2019, he far exceeded expectations when he first entered the system in 2016 and he should be very proud of his accomplishments.”
Tebow, 33, signed with the Mets on September 8, 2016 and participated in the Mets’ instructional league in Port St. Lucie that fall. Tim Tebow played in the NFL with the Denver Broncos, New York Jets, and Philadelphia Eagles before pursuing his dream to play professional baseball.
