He hit a three-run home run his first time up for the Double-A Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

Tebow is now 2 for 2 with two home runs and five RBIs in two season-opening at-bats.

Tebow plays for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

"It's pretty special and it feels really good", Tebow said after the game about his home run, per The Associated Press' John Kekis. He was 1-for-18 with 11 strikeouts and just one walk. "We've got to be focused on the next day".

Tebow, 30, also homered last season in his first at-bat for the Singe-A Columbia Fireflies. The New York Mets minor leaguer connected on a frigid Thursday night at home for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies in the Eastern League, facing Portland.


"He's another ballplayer. I understand all the excitement because it's Tim Tebow", Wilpon said before the game. That's why he's here - moving up the chain.

"I like it. Tebow's a great guy", Pochkar said. He also wasn't particularly effective at the plate a year ago, when he struck out 26 percent of the time with Class-A Columbia and High-A St. Lucie and slugged.347 with a.309 OBP. He was hampered by a left ankle sprain and had been used exclusively as a designated hitter or pinch hitter.

Tebow got the start in left field today, and found himself batting 7th in the lineup. While his initial stint with the Mets during spring training was met with mixed reviews - many saw his presence and potential call-up as little more than a publicity stunt - if he can keep swinging for the fences, his Major League dream might become a reality. "It's more than just the ability".

"A lot of people rag on him for doing what he's doing".

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