Tim Tebow to open season with Columbia Fireflies

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

Anyone who thought that Tim Tebow would open the season with the Binghamton Rumble Ponies was kidding themselves.  Perhaps it was wishful thinking.  The real debate was if he'd start with High-A St. Lucie, Low-A Columbia, or perhaps go to Extended Spring Training and head to Rookie League Brooklyn or Kingsport.  Monday, that question was answered.  The New York Mets have announced Tim Tebow will open the season with the Low-A Columbia Fireflies.

Tebow, the former NFL Quarterback, is batting .235 with the Mets in Grapefruit League play.

Columbia opens the season at home on April 6.
