Tim Tebow announced yesterday that he is pursuing a career in baseball. This is a fun move but one that was not expected. Well the former Denver Broncos first rounder has at least one person who believes he will land on a team. His former teammate Eric Decker guarantees that Tebow will land on a team.
“I’ll just say if you haven’t played baseball for 10 years or however many years it’s been, I don’t know what the chances are. But if I was a Double-A or Single-A team, I’m signing him to get the ticket sales up,” Decker said. “I’m sure he’ll have success in that field. But as far as the skill aspect, I think hitting a baseball is one of the hardest things, so it’ll be interesting to see his progress.”
“Well, of course, he’s gonna do it,” Decker said. “Someone is going to sign him, I guarantee you that, because it’s Tim Tebow and [the fans] will be coming to a baseball game with a football jersey on, selling tickets. I want to see what kind of player he is. I haven’t seen him play baseball, but he’s an athlete and works tremendously hard, so obviously he’s going to put everything he has into it. We’ll see.”
