Tim Tebow may be starting his 2nd year in professional baseball in Binghamton

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - Former NFL Quarterback turned baseball player Tim Tebow may be starting his second year in professional baseball in the Parlor City.

According to the North Jersey Record newspaper, baseball sources have stated that the New York Mets want Tim Tebow to begin the season at the Double-A level with the Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

Tebow has been invited to the Mets Spring Training Camp this year in hopes of accelerating his training and progress.

Tebow played in Single-A Port Saint Lucie, Florida last season and Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson told reporters that he believes the 30-year old will eventually play in the Major Leagues.

According to Binghamton Rumble Ponies Assistant General Manager, John Bayne, the team has not been given any indication of Tebow's arrival.

He says the Rumble Ponies would know whether or not to expect him on the team about a week before the season starts.

If he does come to Binghamton, Bayne says the front office would consult with the Mets to learn about a plan to accommodate his arrival.

Bayne does say the Rumble Ponies organization "would love to have him play in Binghamton."
