"I'm thankful for all of the opportunities from the Mets", Tebow said at his press conference Sunday.

But Tebow has recently improved in certain aspects, Alderson said, such as power, on-base percentage and exit velocity.

Tebow began his first pro baseball season with Class A Columbia, drawing huge crowds at home and wherever the Fireflies went in the South Atlantic League. "You'll get so many questions about the bus rides and everything... You have to focus on, 'Am I seeing the pitches, am I identifying them and what am I doing with them, am I finding things that I can do damage with.' The results are whatever else people are talking about". "The opportunity to come here and everything that the Fireflies did and their fans and the support".
