Not so long ago, Tim Tebow was the quarterback for the Denver Broncos pulling off an astonishing defeat of the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime during the 2011 playoffs. These days, things are a little bit different for the 29-year-old, but he is still pulling off amazing feats.

Recently, Tebow decided to switch to baseball, and he was picked up as an outfielder by the New York Mets, signing a minor league contract, meaning he will take part in their instructional league and gradually work up if he showed the required skill.

It's only taken him one game to show his potential, to which everyone at the Mets must be enjoying.

In a video tweeted out by Katie Johnson of WPTV, it shows the former Heisman trophy winner hitting the ball from home plate for a home run to the appreciation of the small crowd in attendance during his debut in the Mets' instructional league.

A great swing and one that will certainly please the Mets officials in attendance, on his debut of all days as well. A fantastic start to what he is hoping to be a long and successful baseball career.

If he keeps playing like this, Tebow will eventually get his chance to play in the majors, but he has a long way to go before that happens. There are still many obstacles in his way.

Still, he missed a big opportunity to do his recognisable Tebowing action on home plate as part of the celebration for his home run, but a promising start nevertheless.
