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.
