Tim Tebow will continue his baseball career with the New York Mets organization in 2019 and remain an inspiration to many.

In 2010, if someone said that Tim Tebow was playing in the New York Mets organization, everyone would either be utterly confused or on the ground laughing.

Since the organization signed the former Heisman Trophy winner in 2016, he has been criticized for trying to play professional baseball and told that he should continue to keep trying to play football. Many shook their heads at the Mets and thought it was another dumb signing by the club. In 2019, Tebow has the possibility to become a Major League Baseball player and play for the Mets.

Before breaking his right hand and going down in August last season, he was a Double-A All-Star and hit .273. Mets General Manager Brodie Van Wagenen announced that Tebow will be invited to major league camp and start the season in Triple-A. He is one step away from making it to the big league.

As the inaugural season of the Alliance of American football is full underway, Tebow has been recruited several times, each time declining the opportunity to continue pursuing his baseball career.

“I’m all in on baseball. No way could I stop and not give this the chance after everything that I have worked for,” says Tebow.

Tebow explains how grateful and humble he is for the offers from the AAF but is fully committed towards baseball. The Mets signing Tebow has been good for the young fans of, not just New York, but all of sports.

Known to be an inspiring figure, Tebow constantly serves as motivation for people who doubt themselves. Known as an inspiration throughout his football career, Tebow has shown millions of people that you should not let anyone stop you accomplish your dream, whatever it is.

"“You are always going to have critics and naysayers and people that are going to tell you that you won’t, that you can’t, that you shouldn’t. Most of those people are the people that didn’t, that wouldn’t, that couldn’t.” – Tim Tebow"

He continuously inspires young baseball fans, aspiring athletes and society in general. His drive and motivation is contagious.  He reminds people that their goals are not impossible. There are always going to be obstacles in the way of one’s goals.

Tebow shows everyone that he does not let these obstacles hold him back but uses external doubt as a motivation.
