The best possible start

Former Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow's fledgling baseball career got off to a flying start with a home run on his first at bat in an instructional game. Tebow, who has signed a minor-league deal with the New York Mets, smacked the homer in an instructional league game against the St Louis Cardinals in Florida.

It was Tebow's first actual game since he was scooped up by the Mets following a tryout in Los Angeles last month.

"I feel like every day I'm getting a little more comfortable," Tebow told ESPN on Tuesday. "It's great just to see live pitching and get live at-bats. I'm just getting a little bit better every day. That's the goal."

The boy's got a good arm

Tebow won the 2007 Heisman Trophy during a successful college football career at the University of Florida. He was chosen as a first-round draft pick in 2010, inspiring Denver to a playoff win after only his second pro season.

However his career fizzled after spells with the New York Jets and the New England Patriots, before he was released by the Eagles in 2015.
