It seemed like a pipe dream when it was first reported but perhaps we should have taken Tim Tebow's sudden desire to play for a Major League Baseball team a little more seriously.

After a workout in front of several MLB teams last month Tebow as sufficiently impressed at least one team, prompting the New York Mets to sign him to a minor league contract that will see him participating in the Mets’ Instructional League.

Now it's worth noting that this doesn't mean Tebow will ever play in even a single MLB game, but obviously the Mets believe he has the tools to develop into a player who could potentially be at that level. That or they are just looking ti capitalize on his popularity for a little extra publicity.
