    Tim Tebow, Major League Baseball Player?

    Former NFL quarterback and current ESPN broadcaster Tim Tebow is actively pursuing a career in professional baseball and plans to hold a workout for Major League Baseball teams later this month, according to his agents Jimmy Sexton and Nick Khan.

    For almost the past year, Tebow has been training in Arizona and Los Angeles to hone his hitting and fielding skills in a sport he has not played on a full-time basis since 2005.

    Tebow was an all-state baseball player in Florida that year and hit .494 as a junior, helping Nease High School reach the final four of the Florida state playoffs.

    "Obviously we support Tim in his pursuit of a baseball career, as we have in all his ventures," said Sexton, Tebow's football agent, who is now working with CAA baseball agent Brodie Van Wagenen.

    "Tim's athletic ability, his work ethic, his leadership and his competitiveness were evident in football and will show in baseball. Knowing Tim's passion and desire, we won't be surprised by anything he accomplishes."

    Tebow — who will turn 29 on Sunday — has notified his current employer, ESPN, of his desire to chase a baseball career, but he will continue to fulfill his broadcast obligations to the network.

    Isn't it nice to have all this free time to pick up and just say "Hey, I'm going to play baseball". Good for him

    Still think he's stupid for not being open to playing a different position. The guy has a build of a linebacker/running back. Should have tried either one IMO.

    Or he was smart enough to realize that he wasn't anywhere close to being a good enough athlete to play elsewhere.

    Yet not smart enough to avoid this current decision.
