Tebow magic strikes on his very first pitch in Double-A

On the very first pitch he saw, the former Heisman Trophy winner ripped a three-run home run over the right field fence.

The first inning bomb put Binghamton in front 5-0 in their season opener. The Rumble Ponies held the lead the entire game, beating the Portland Sea Dogs 6-0.
Just like he did during his football career, Tebow has displayed a knack for stepping up in the big moments in his short time as a pro baseball player.
