PORT ST. LUCIE — Tim Tebow has been reassigned to minor league camp by the New York Mets after hitting .267 with one RBI in eight spring training games.

The 31-year-old outfielder attended big league camp for the second straight year and is expected to start the season at Triple-A Syracuse. The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner out of the University of Florida went 4 for 15 with no extra-base hits in 18 plate appearances during spring training.

Tebow batted .273 with six home runs, 14 doubles and 36 RBIs in 84 games for Double-A Binghamton last year.



  1. His statement in the aftermath of that loss to Ole Pis was the most inspiring ever made by a UF athelete. Too bad U. Meyer ruined his football career by greedily leaving him in a blowout game at Kenturkey, getting him concussed.
