Tim Tebow to pursue a career in professional baseball http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/...tim-tebow-pursue-career-professional-baseball Former NFL quarterback and current ESPN broadcaster Tim Tebow is actively pursuing a career in professional baseball and plans to hold a workout for Major League Baseball teams later this month, according to his agents Jimmy Sexton and Nick Khan. For almost the past year, Tebow has been training in Arizona and Los Angeles to hone his hitting and fielding skills in a sport he has not played on a full-time basis since 2005. Tebow was an all-state baseball player in Florida that year and hit .494 as a junior, helping Nease High School reach the final four of the Florida state playoffs. "Obviously we support Tim in his pursuit of a baseball career, as we have in all his ventures," said Sexton, Tebow's football agent, who is now working with CAA baseball agent Brodie Van Wagenen. Tebow had a tryout with the Los Angeles Dodgers before this season, sources tell ESPN's Darren Rovell. A scout was present for the workout, and the team showed interest in Tebow afterward, the sources said.
