Tim Tebow runs 6.8 60-yard dash for scouts in baseball workout
Tim Tebow ran a 60-yard dash during his baseball workout at USC that was clocked from 6.7–6.8 seconds by reporters on the scene.
There are 42 major-league scouts in attendance to see the former NFL quarterback throw, run and hit out in California. Early on, he was impressive. He showcased a strong arm, and shocked scouts used explicit language as they got a look at his build.
On a bio sheet handed out by Tebow’s agency, he was listed at 6'3" and 255 lbs., with 7.3% body fat.
Here’s a look at Tebow’s dash:
Here’s how he fared out in the outfield:
He was throwing well, but not really seeing the ball well.
He stepped in to hit, and looked pretty comfortable at the plate.
Then, he hit some absolute shots.
A National League scout called Tebow “fringe but serviceable” in the outfield, according to Baseball America’s Taylor Blake Ward.
His 60-yard dash time is right up there with the major-league average of around 6.7–6.9.
