There’s no word on a Tim Tebow call-up anytime soon, but the former football player plans on staying in the Mets organization in 2018

I mean, is it that far fetched to think that Tebow will be in Queens sometime in September to help boost ticket sales in a lost season? You never know…

But probably not, though. Tebow however does plan on staying in the Mets organization in 2018, so he’s not hanging up his baseball hat anytime soon.

Tebow has been performing with the St. Lucie Mets. In 60 games, he’s hitting .226/.299/.356 with five home runs and 29 RBIs. But, the St. Lucie Mets’ minor league season ends on Sunday, and what’s next?

Well, Tebow’s not exactly sure. But, he does plan on still working hard.

"“It’s still something we’re figuring out, but for me it’ll be a lot of training. For me it’ll be about working on training and building the muscle-memory where I can do it for two, five, seven days and continue to build a couple of weeks at a time.”"

Tebow also went on to say that this year was a learning experience for him, and that it was filled with a lot of ups and downs.

According to Tebow, the Mets have not told him what he’s going to be doing this fall, whereas last year Tebow did partake in the Mets instructional league, and then went on to play in the Arizona Fall League.

Meanwhile, the St. Lucie Mets had an influx in spectators this past season. On August 4th, it set its home season record with 124,712 fans in attendance. It’s pretty safe to assume that this is because of Tebow, especially as many of the fans were wearing his No. 15.

So, no word on a September call-up for Tebow (at least one that he’s been made aware of) — not surprising in the slightest. No word on what he’ll be doing this fall as well. But, Tebow will still continue within the Mets organization.

Who knows, maybe we’ll see him in Queens one day. We know that Michael Conforto is just one of many who want to see him up in the majors eventually.
