The former star quarterback-turned-minor leaguer has been invited to major league spring training.

The former Heisman Trophy winner's third camp since launching his baseball career will begin with the rest of the Mets' major league hopefuls next month. The team brought him to spring training as a non-roster player in 2018 but not 2017.

The New York Mets have officially invited Tebow back to major league spring training for the second straight year, the team announced on Thursday.

Flu spreading in US with 19 kids reported dead
The Middlesex London Health unit is urging Londoners to get their flu shot following the first death of the season. Unfortunately, 3 additional influenza-associated pediatric deaths were reported during Week #2.

Tebow, 31, is hoping for better results this time around after going 1 for 18 with 11 strikeouts in seven games during spring training a year ago.

As the Big Lead notes, "Tebow took a big step forward previous year, hitting.273 with six homers and 36 RBIs for the New York Mets' AA affiliate in Binghamton". Van Wagenen also hinted that Tebow could play his way onto the Mets, but the Mets' depth in the outfield makes it unlikely barring a rash of injuries.

The disclosure for this sale can be found here. $2.02M worth of stock was sold by Denton David M on Thursday, November 29. The company had revenue of $47.27 billion during the quarter, compared to analysts' expectations of $47.22 billion.

Tebow, 31, spent last season at Double-A Binghamton but missed the final month of the season with a fractured hamate bone in his right hand. Tebow, who recently got engaged, appeared in seven Grapefruit League games last spring being being reassigned to minor league camp.

According to Sports Illustrated, in December of 2018, Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen said Tebow will start 2019 with the Syracuse Chiefs, noting it's just one step away from the big leagues.
