Illinois Sports Team Offers Tim Tebow a Contract
Tim Tebow is changing careers. He's trading his football in for a baseball. One Illinois sports team has already offered him a contract.
NBC Chicago reports that Tim Tebow, who was an All-State baseball player in high school, has been working out with coaches in Arizona "to get ready to make the jump into the world of baseball, and he’s hoping to host a showcase with MLB teams later this summer."
Upon hearing this news one local Illinois sports team jumped at the chance and have offered Tim a contract. The Frontier League’s Schaumburg Boomers are offering him a chance to play in the outfield.
Although the Boomers are not affiliated with a major league team, "scouts still do come out to their games, and Boomers General Manager Pete Laven cited the scouts’ presence as an incentive for Tebow to sign a deal with the team."
At this time there no word or action from Tim Tebow or his team about the Boomers offer.
Wow! First of all Tim turning to baseball is a head turner.
However, Tim signing with the Boomers? Hmmm... Although it's a smart move for the team, personally I don't see that happening. You know that Tim has his eye on going to the major leagues and not wanting to spend time in lower leagues waiting to get there. I'm wondering if this change of careers will be like Michael Jordan going from basketball to baseball. Remember that? Hmmm...I guess time will tell.
