I’m ALL IN on these Tim Tebow Spring Training stories. Remember a few years back when SportsCenter became TebowCenter and everyone complained? I’m ready for that to happen again. I can’t get enough of the Tebow baseball stories. Sure, maybe in a few months it could get old, but right now stories like these make my day.
Somehow I’m only seeing this today, but here’s a good one from yesterday morning where Tebow was warming up with Yoenis Cespedes.
Tim Tebow and Yoenis Cespedes are playing catch together right now on the main field. Tebow has airmailed him multiple times. #Mets

Tebow over threw Cespedes in warm up. Nearly hits reporter Cespedes yells "Danger!" Fun moment.

Tebow, playing catch, just threw one way over Cespedes' head. Throwing is not his thing.

How there’s not video of this is beyond me. There should be a camera on him 24/7. I need to see a video of Timmy playing a little catch in the outfield and just bombing it over Cespedes’ head. This is the stuff that keeps me going.
Here’s a little more detail on Tim almost hitting a reporter from the NY Post:
He also got a lesson in warming up from Yoenis Cespedes, who has a most unique routine that caught Tebow by surprise as the former quarterback made two overthrows with a softball, nearly hitting a reporter on the first with Cespedes yelling, “Danger!’’ as the softball sailed over his head.
“First, he throws a two-pound ball,’’ Tebow said with a smile. “Then, he goes to a softball and then it was to a baseball. I just thought we were going to be warming up with a baseball and there was all these different drills. I liked it, it was fun. It was definitely different.’’
