A believer or non-believer of Tim Tebow?Posted: Updated:
Binghamton, N.Y. - It was in 2016 when Tim Tebow made the change from football to baseball. The change that a lot of people questioned. Although a lot of people buy into Tim Tebow swinging a baseball bat, there's a lot of people that still think it's all for publicity. Either way, you have to respect what he's doing and how he's been able to draw a crowd, fans and audiences not only in one sport, but two completely different sports. The last time the thirty-year old picked up a baseball bat was his Junior year in high school and here he is trying it to make it to the big leagues. When was the last time a Heisman-trophy winner played minor league baseball? Bo Jackson, Deion Sanders? His story is is intriguing and simply fascinating to see the improvement, dedication and passion he has for the new sport.
The Eastern-League All-Star game was a perfect example of the outfielders ability to draw a large crowd no matter where he is or what sport he's playing. Significantly increasing the ticket prices just by over night after it was announced he would appear in the game. Fans waiting over an hour just for his autograph and bringing young kids out to the ball park all so they can see Tim Tebow swing a baseball bat.
"I came here to see Tim Tebow."
"It's real interesting to switch sports like that it takes a lot of courage."
But, then there's the non believers, the ones who don't buy into Tim Tebow. Everyone has those people, no matter the circumstance.
"I'm not a fan.... I think it's been commercialized too much."
"If you have a dream and you're passionate about something don't be afraid to go and live that out and there will always be people that want to bring you down, but let your passion speak louder than your critics will ever speak" said Tebow.
