Tim Tebow stretches out before batting practice at the New York Mets' complex, Monday, Sept. 19, 2016, in Port St. Lucie, Fla. The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL quarterback got to the complex early Monday, and started his first workout as part of their instructional league team.

The Tim Tebow Baseball Experience will stop this season in Lakewood, N.J., the home of the Phillies affiliate in the South Atlantic League.

The Mets announced Monday that Tebow - who is trying transition from quarterback to outfielder - will begin the season with the single-A Columbia Fireflies.

Tebow and Columbia visit to Lakewood’s FirstEnergy Park for a four-game series on May 13-16. Tebow will play in the same league with the Lakewood Blueclaws, who are expected to feature Phillies No. 1 pick Mickey Moniak and right handed pitching prospect Sixto Sanchez.

Tebow had four hits in 20 at-bats this spring with the Mets. All four hits were singles. His baseball turn started in the offseason when he played in the Arizona Fall League on a team that featured a crew of Phillies prospects, including second baseman Scott Kingery.
