Tim Tebow will be back in the national spotlight Wednesday night with an appearance on “The Tonight Show.”
The Columbia Fireflies outfielder and former Heisman trophy winner will be a part of the talk show hosted by Jimmy Fallon. Tebow’s journey in the minor league baseball system of the New York Mets is sure to be a topic of discussion.
He also is promoting his new book, “Know Who You Are, Live like it Matters: A Homeschooler’s Interactive Guide to Discovering Your True Identity,” which was released this week.
Never miss a local story.
The Fireflies are off Wednesday after playing at the Lakewood BlueClaws in Lakewood Township, N.J. A seven-game homestand begins Thursday against West Virginia.
Tebow in 31 games is batting .227 with two home runs and 11 RBIs. He has 25 hits in 110 at-bats.
The Mets are pondering the best time to give Tebow a promotion.
“The Tonight Show” airs at 11:30 p.m. Eastern time.
