Tim Tebow helped comfort a fan who had a seizure in the stands after the former Heisman Trophy winner's debut in the Arizona Fall League, according to ESPN's Adam Rubin. 

Tebow reportedly put his hand on the fan and said a prayer before the man started breathing, according to ABC 15's Kari Van Horn. Tebow stayed with the fan until paramedics arrived.

Tebow finished the game 0–3 for the Scottsdale Scorpions and crashed into the outfield wall as he fell short of making a catch in the bottom of the fifth inning.

Tebow was removed from the game in the bottom of the seventh inning and was not hurt on the play.

The Mets signed Tebow after he worked out for 28 of the 30 MLB teams during a showcase on Aug. 30. Before his instructional league games, he last played organized baseball in his junior year in high school. He has repeatedly said that he had offers to play in the NFL at other positions besides quarterback, but he refused.
