Tim Tebow hits second home run for Columbia Fireflies

Tim Tebow hits second home run for Columbia Fireflies

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.

Tebow drove home three runs to give Columbia a 6-0 lead in the fifth inning.

Tim Tebow was at it again on Sunday. Unlike his first homer, when he stopped at second base because he thought it was a ground-rule double, there was no doubt about this ball leaving the yard.

He says employees ordered 60 pizzas and 20 trays of chicken biscuits to feed more than 300 customers in Panama City, Florida. The cancellations have left thousands of people in NYC struck without a way to get to Florida to many Pesach hotels.

Tebow's five runs batted him are good for second on the team.

Tebow, 29, is now one shy of Michael Jordan's home run total with Class AA Birmingham in 1994. "He works on things every single day". The former National Football League quarterback-turned-baseball player, who homered in his first professional at-bat earlier in the week, followed that up by going deep for the second time this season. If he keeps hitting like this maybe he'll move up in the Mets organization.

WHAT'S NEXT: The Fireflies continue their opening home stand with a three-game series against the Hickory (North Carolina) Crawdads that begins Monday.
