Tim Tebow says goodbye, retires from baseball

Tim Tebow’s baseball adventure is over, as the New York Mets team confirmed that the outfielder has officially retired.

“It has been a pleasure to have Tim in our organization, he was a professional during his four years with the Mets,” said team president Sandy Alderson.

“Coming to Triple-A in 2019, he far exceeded the expectations that were there when he first entered our system in 2016 and he should be very proud of his accomplishments.”

Tebow signed with the Mets on September 8, 2016 and saw action in the Instructional League in Port St. Lucie that fall.

In 2019, his final season, he had 77 games for the Syracuse Mets (AAA). In three seasons, Tebow hit .223 percent, with 107 runs scored, 48 doubles, three triples, 18 home runs, 107 RBIs and five stolen bases in 287 games.

“I want to thank the Mets, Mr. Alderson, the fans and all my teammates for the opportunity to be a part of such a great organization,” Tebow said.

“I loved every minute of this trip, but right now I feel like I’m being called from other directions.

I never wanted to be partially involved in anything. I always wanted to be 100% into whatever I chose. Thank you once again everyone for your support on this incredible journey in baseball, I will always fondly remember my days as a Met. (GG) (
