EASTER SUNDAY HAS COME EARLY
-Written by Alec Baicher
He did it, Jesus has resurrected early!
Well, not really (but actually, maybe.) Tim Tebow did the unthinkable. In his first official at bat in his minor league baseball career, Tebow launched an opposite field home run for his first official hit and home run as a professional. Tebow, playing for the Mets Class-A affiliate Columbia Fireflies, sent the packed crowd into a frenzy.
The story gets ever better. The pitcher who gave up the home run to Tebow, Domenic Mazza, was drafted in the 22nd round of the MLB Amateur draft by the San Francisco Giants in 2015. Why is this important you ask? Well, Mazza was pick #666, aka the sign of the Devil.
FOLKS, YOU LITERALLY CANNOT MAKE THIS UP. THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS JUST TOOK THE DEVIL DEEP.
If this doesn't prove that Tebow is #blessed, then I don't know what is real anymore.
Luckily for Mazza, he was greeted to a box of Dominoe's and a bunch of text messages from old friends making jabs at him for giving up the long ball to Tebow. To be honest, Mazza ending up winning, he got to eat Dominoe's. All Tebow did was hit a home run.
To top this story off, the strength and condition coach for the Fireflies, Tanner Miracle called that this would happen in his first at bat. Tanner MIRACLE. My head is spinning with this whole story. Truly unbelievable.
The Mets are a lock for the World Series with this guy. Get him to Flushing!
P.S. Oh yeah, the Mets won 6-2 last night and Harvey looked like the Dark Knight again. All is good in Metsland
