Tebow and the Rumble Ponies are slated to play the Fisher Cats in Manchester in a four-game series starting Monday, April 16.

After his first Double-A game, I asked Tebow how it felt getting the type of support he did in his first game in Binghamton.

He pounced on the first pitch that he saw at the Double-A level for a three-run homer.

Tebow struggled in Spring Training, going 1 -or-18 with 11 strikeouts in seven exhibition games with the Mets.




"He comes in, gets his swings in early".

"I was pretty cynical", he said. He was hampered by a left ankle sprain and had been used exclusively as a designated hitter or pinch hitter because of the injury. He was greeted with a nice round of applause at pregame introductions. "He's always looking to get better", he said. The 30-year-old Tebow is in his second full year in the minor leagues, having split the 2017 season between Low-A Columbia (S.C.) and High-A St. Lucie (Fla.) in the New York Mets' system.

Lourdes Gurriel hit a pair of doubles for two runs batted in, and Cavan Biggio added a pair of hits for two RBIs, leading the Fisher Cats to a 6-0 victory over the Yard Goats in Hartford, Conn. Alderson said the experiment wouldn't last forever, but he remained optimistic because Tebow had made "meaningful progress". "It's more than just the ability".

Binghamton's unusual nickname comes from an area that bills itself as the "Carousel Capital of the World".
