Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow is actively pursuing a career in professional baseball, his agents told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on what is coincidentally Deion Sanders' birthday. Tebow plans to hold workouts for all 30 MLB teams later this month, Schefter reports. Tebow last played baseball in high school in 2005, but has been training for the past year in the hopes of playing the outfield for a professional team. He has been working out with former MLB catcher Chad Moeller, who called Tebow’s swing impressive and said he believes Tebow has the skill to make it to the majors “relatively quickly.”

The New York Mets have signed former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow to a minor-league contract, the team announced on Thursday. Tebow worked out for 28 out the 30 MLB teams during a showcase on Aug. 30, showing impressive power, running the 60-yard dash and doing outfield drills. He hasn't played organized baseball since his junior year in high school. The Heisman Trophy winner spent six seasons on various NFL rosters, although he hadn't appeared in an NFL regular season game since 2012 when he was a member of the New York Jets.
