On Thursday morning, Tebow once again showed off that power during batting practice.
Anthony DiComo, a Mets beat writer for MLB.com, posted a tweet to let people know Tebow hit a shed beyond the right-center field wall on a huge home run, saying “His power is legitimate.”
Your daily Tim Tebow update: He just hit the roof of a storage shed beyond the right-center field fence during BP. His power is legitimate. pic.twitter.com/vlmMLWE5D7

That’s all well and good, and, let’s be honest, the average Joe and Janet couldn’t do that.
Just don’t tell that to Twitter.
I played on that field in Mets fantasy camp and hit that shed as well not a big deal lol

I’m an outsider with this Tebow/Mets stuff… but is 380’ considered a powerful shot?
I’m sure Tebow without a doubt can hit a ball over 400+. He’s a big athletic dude lol. 380 is a flyout to center field

I could hit that shed if someone threw BP at under 50mph too.. He is not a major leaguer. Come on

My power is legit during BP too. Tebow is not even a AAAA guy. Are you forced to tweet about this because of Tebow mania or are the Mets so bad that this is the highlight of the morning?

A quick rebuttal here: Tebow is definitely better than “a AAAA guy,” based on the fact he did pretty well at St. Lucie (A+) last year after being called up from Columbia.
And while many were scoffing at the notion that Tebow hitting a storage shed was a big deal, it’s clear he still has his fans.
Was his power ever even questioned? Look at the guy

Sure are a lot of haters coaching their kids teams or working behind a desk saying they can do it too. No one is forcing you to watch. It's a choice. Move along. pic.twitter.com/0ysP24HI0A

It’s going to be fascinating to see how Tebow progresses on his journey as a baseball player. He’s clearly having the time of his life, and he draws a crowd like none other. Stay tuned, folks, because Tebow Time isn’t close to becoming extinct.
