Yesterday, we ran an article on Jon Hamm and how before he caught his big break on Mad Men, he was approaching 30 years old and recently removed from a job on a soft core porn set as a glorified chore boy. Hamm’s dreams of making a living from acting seemed as far off as Tim Tebow making it in the big leagues after transitioning from football. But, despite the doubts from the public a large, the 30-year-old has improved immensely during his baseball journey, earning a non-roster invitee to Major League Spring Training this year.
Tebow made his Double-A debut on Thursdaywith the New York Mets’ Double-A affiliate Binghamton Rumble Ponies after moving up a level in his minor-league baseball career, and on the very first pitch, sent a bottle rocket over the right-center field fence.
Tebow finished the night 1-for-4 but 4-for-4 in our hearts.
