It did not take long for Heisman winning quarterback Tim Tebow to make a splash in his first at bat during his professional baseball game debut.  

Playing for the New York Mets minor league system, Tebow hammered a pitch to left field in an instructional game in Port St. Lucie, Fla. He has not played organized baseball since his junior year of high school in 2005, in Florida.

"I feel like every day I'm getting a little more comfortable,'' Tebow, who singled in his last two at-bats of the simulated game, told The Associated Press. ''It's great just to see live pitching and get live at-bats. I'm just getting a little bit better every day. That's the goal.''
