Tim Tebow is Assigned to Mets Class A Farm Team at Columbia, SC
Likely, few players at the Class A level will ever make it to the major leagues. The dream for many baseball players ends somewhere in the minor league. Tim Tebow gave up on pro football and signed with the Mets last Fall and played in the Arizona Fall League. His performance there and in the Grapefruit Leagues have been mediocre at best. He deserves a chance to prove himself over an entire season. He was just assigned to the Mets minor league Class A farm team at Columbia, SC. If he does well, he'll be promoted. If not he'll be released like any other minor leaguer.
The Wikipedia actually provides a list of players who played in both Major League Baseball and the National Football League. Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders are the most famous. Time will tell if Tim Tebow will make that list.
