COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Tim Tebow may have found his hitting groove once more with the Columbia Fireflies.
After ending an 0-for-18 slump with an RBI double on Saturday night against the West Virginia Power, Tebow followed that up with his first home run in six weeks on Sunday for the Class A New Mets affiliate.
The former NFL quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner also became the first Firefly — it’s a 2-year-old franchise — to trade jokes on late-night TV as a guest on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Wednesday — which was an off day for the club.
Tebow played in six of Columbia’s seven games this week as the Fireflies went 3-4.
