Watch: Tim Tebow gets robbed of extra bases
Tim Tebow’s spring training campaign is off to a somewhat unlucky start.
The New York Mets outfielder was robbed of a potential extra base hit by Houston Astros outfielder Myles Straw in his second spring training game.

The good news for Tebow is that spring training tends to be more about process than results, and the process looks quite sound. He put a decent swing on the ball and took it opposite field, but was simply outdone by an excellent catch.
Tebow is obviously doing something right given the fact he was invited to the major league camp and not sent directly to work with the minor leaguers. Maybe he’ll end up making an impression after all.
