Tim Tebow is set to work out for MLB teams next week and it sounds like he’ll have a full house as he shows his stuff. More than 20 clubs are confirmed to attend the workout, a source tells ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Prior to the start of the season, Tebow reportedly worked out for the Dodgers and the team showed some level of interest in him afterward. Of course, the former NFL quarterback faces an uphill climb as he hasn’t played baseball full-time since 2005. The former first-round pick of the Broncos has not appeared in the NFL since 2012 when he was with the Jets. Since then, he has had training camp stints with the Patriots and Eagles, but he fell short each time.
In Tebow’s workout on Tuesday, he will reportedly run a 60-yard dash, catch fly balls with throws to the bases, and take live batting practice. Tebow says he is hoping to play in the outfield and does not want to play for a team that only wants him for minor league ticket sales.
