Tim Tebow is the next Big Papi

For all you Denver Broncos fans out there, if the Tebow thing doesn't work out - he could always just go play for the Rockies.

Tebow got in some whacks -- not at the critics who consider Josh McDaniels and the Denver Broncos cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs for trading up to take Tebow in the first round of the NFL Draft.

No, these whacks came at batting practice with the high school kids on the Memphis University School baseball team.

Tebow hit 12 homers on 15 pitches.


Tebow played high school baseball before giving his heart to Gator football — winning a national championship, along with a Heisman, in the process. I don't know if he could have gone the way of Broncos legend John Elway, who played minor league ball in the Yankees system, but it's a notable near-parallel.

And yet if he did play the grand old game, you have to wonder if we'd be criticizing Tebow's batting stance and swing like we do his throwing motion. 

Well now that you mention it... he could choke up on the bat a little.
