Tim Tebow has eventful first day in Arizona Fall League

Everyone's favorite former quarterback, Florida Gators legend Tim Tebow, continued to pursue his dream of playing baseball in the bigs with his Arizona Fall League debut on Tuesday.

First, some background. Tebow signed with the New York Mets last month and reported to instructional league, which is as low-level as the minors gets but it still professional baseball. He homered in his first at-bat and ended up going 4-14 with just the one extra-base hit. Now in the Arizona Fall League, Tebow faces stiff competition from some of baseball's top prospects, most coming from Double-A and Triple-A this past season.

At the plate Tuesday, Tebow went 0 for 3 with three groundouts in his first AFL game. So we have him at 4 for 17 now overall, which is a .235 average.

First off, Tebow crashed into the outfield wall in left while attempting to haul in a fly ball:

But as it turns out, his greatest contribution might not have shown up in the box score. A fan at Tuesday's game apparently suffered a seizure, and Tebow was quickly on the scene and stayed with the man until medical help arrived:
