Tim Tebow Hits Home Run After Greeting Boy With Autism In The Crowd

It seems like even if former Florida star quarterback Tim Tebow does something that is not newsworthy, it still makes the headlines. Last night, however, he did something that was completely newsworthy.

Since being called up to the New York Mets Class A minor league affiliate, the St. Lucie Mets, Tebow has totaled five home runs; the latter coming last night against Tampa Bay Rays affiliate, the Charlotte Stone Crabs.

This home run was not just a home run, there was a much more meaningful backstory to it. While on deck, a 10-year-old fan with high-functioning autism named Seth Bosch approached Tebow to where the two eventually shook hands and had a short exchange of words. What followed was something special as Tebow took a pitch deep in the next at bat.

So often in sports we get caught up in the negativity. Whether it be criticizing players for the play on the court or actions off the court, there is too much darkness in the current landscape of sports media. There are many stories like these that go unreported. Instead of dwelling on the negativity, focus on a story like this that truly embodies why we love sports.
