The Long Shot: Tim Tebow making it to Major League Baseball.
The Odds: 250/1 (via USA Today)
Why It Might Happen: According to reports, Tim Tebow is currently pursuing a career in professional baseball. And we admit, Tebow is far from a sure thing to make an Opening Day roster by next season. The former Florida Gator quarterback and failed NFL-er has a lot of strikes against him, so to speak. He’s 29. He hasn’t played in a non-exhibition professional sports game since 2012. And, oh yeah, he hasn’t played organized baseball since his junior year of high school, 11 years ago.
Tebow has apparently been tearing it up in the batting cages, according to guys who would know, like Gary Sheffield.
But then again, Tebow has always found a way to amaze. He captivated the college football world with two national championships and a Heisman Trophy at Florida, and he made the entire world go crazy as he led the Broncos to a playoff win over the Steelers. In fact, he led so many comebacks in 2011 that you couldn’t help but believe that the Man Upstairs was looking out for him. (See: SNL sketch.)
Also, Tebow has apparently been tearing it up in the batting cages, according to guys who would know, like Gary Sheffield. (Sheffield: “[Tebow’s] a NATURAL. I absolutely believe in his ability to play in the bigs. Tim has IT.”)
So maybe it could happen. Maybe Tim Tebow will make it to the big leagues. After all, he did hit a 479-foot home run in high school.
If he does make it, he totally has to play for the Angels.
