Tim Tebow blasts second home run in 3 games

Tebow, the former National Football League quarterback who won the Heisman Trophy at Florida and is attempting a professional baseball career, hit a home run for the second time in three games against the Augusta GreenJackets on Sunday. He also cleared the fences in the team's season-opening 14-7 victory over the Augusta GreenJackets on Thursday.

Laugh if you must, but Tim Tebow is having a great time being "one of the guys" in the minor leagues.

The rest of Sunday's game wasn't as excited as the homer, as Tebow went 1 for 3 with 1 strike out in the Fireflies 6-0 win.

Unlike Tebow's first professional jog around the bases, the 29-year-old Heisman Trophy victor didn't stop at second base before realizing the ball had cleared the fence this time.

Tebow, a first round pick of the Broncos in 2010, is batting.250 (three for 12) with a walk. He is hitting.250 with five RBI in three games this season.

In spring training for the Mets, Tebow batted.148 in 27 appearances. Not bad for someone who hasn't played baseball regularly since his junior year of high school. According to ESPN, Tebow is only one home run away from matching Michael Jordan's baseball career statistics.
