PEORIA, Ariz. —Tim Tebow has mastered the ground out.
Still looking for his first hit at the Arizona Fall League, Tebow grounded out to the first baseman Thursday in his first at-bat, giving Tebow six ground outs in eight appearances.
Tebow, playing in his third game for the Scottsdale Scorpions, is the team’s designated hitter and batting seventh in the order in a game against the Peoria Javelinas at the Peoria Sports Complex.
During his first two games in the Arizona Fall League, where Tebow is facing some of the top prospects in baseball, the former NFL quarterback went 0-for-6 with a walk and an RBI.
Tebow drove in a run Wednesday night on a fielder’s choice, but in seven plate appearance has not gotten the ball out of the infield.
Tebow will be playing games Monday through Thursday and on the weekend fulfilling his contractual obligations with ESPN as a college football TV analyst. Tebow said he was scheduled to take a redeye fight Thursday to Knoxville, Tenn., where he will provide commentary during the Tennessee-Alabama game Saturday.
