Tebow hits and misses
Tim Tebow is trying his hand at baseball these days as a farmhand for the New York Mets.
Tebow made his debut yesterday in the Arizona instructional league. The former football standout is trying to make the transition to minor league baseball.
You could safely say he struggled in his baseball debut for the Scottsdale Scorpions. Tebow misplayed a fly ball in right field. He wasn’t overly impressive at the plate either, an 0-fo- 3 performance including a dribbler in front of the plate that he didn’t even try to run out.
A tough day on the diamond for sure, but Tebow is looking at the bright side. After the game, Tebow even took time out to sign some autographs for fans young and old.

British rock singer Rod Stewart was knighted by Prince William at Buckingham Palace yesterday.
The raspy-voiced singer of “Maggie May,” “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy,” and “You Wear It Well” was honored for services to music and charity. The 71-year-old star will now be able to call himself Sir Roderick David Stewart.
He was joined by his wife and two sons for the investiture ceremony. When the award was announced by Queen Elizabeth earlier this year, Stewart said it was “a monumental honor.” He added: “I thank her majesty and promise to ‘wear it well.'”
