A lot of people couldn't believe it when the news broke that Tim Tebow was (re)entering the world of baseball.

Now, the former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL starting quarterback is making his Grapefruit League debut this Wednesday. He'll have quite the daunting task ahead of him when he faces the Boston Red Sox and their Cy Young winner on the mound, Rick Porcello.

Sources say Tebow will start at designated hitter. Manager Terry Collins says Tebow might get see some action in the field by Friday.

The Mets made some noise when they singed Tebow to a minor-league contract in September 2016. Tebow played for the instructional league as well as the Arizona Fall League.

Unfortunately, his numbers in the Arizona League weren't so hot. Tebow hit .194 with 20 strikeouts in 62 at-bats last fall.

Many don't expect Tebow to actually make the Mets final roster. He'll more than likely be assigned to one of their Class-A affiliates in April.

He did manage to hit a home run at his very first at bat however. Tebow always knows how to make a splash wherever he goes.
