Tim Tebow became a household name throwing the pigskin, but he left the NFL behind him to play Pro Baseball. Now his time as a New York Met is done as welll.
Tebow announced today that his time as a Major League player is over. He is officially retiring from the MLB now.
The Heisman Trophy winner joined the New York Mets in 2016, and he made it as far as the AAA level with the Syracuse Mets… in 2019.
Tebow played 287 games in 3 seasons for the Mets farm system. During that time he slammed 18 home runs.
In a statement about his retirement from Pro Baseball, Tebow thanked everyone and said he loved every moment he spent in the game.
“I want to thank the Mets, Mr. Alderson, the fans and all my teammates for the chance to be a part of such a great organization.”
“I loved every minute of the journey, but at this time I feel called in other directions. I never want to be partially in on anything. I always want to be 100 percent in on whatever I choose.”
“Thank you again for everyone’s support of this awesome journey in baseball, I’ll always cherish my time as a Met.”
Tebow is now on to his next adventure. We’ll have to see what he decides to do, but the 33-year-old likely has enough funds to do him for a while if he really wants to retire for real this time.
