Tim Tebow Coming to Play the Fort Myers Miracles
Converted NFL football star Tim Tebow got a promotion in his Minor League Baseball career this past Sunday. Tebow who was playing with the Columbia Fireflies in lower-A baseball will now play for the St. Lucie Mets in the high-A Florida State League.
With the promotion of Tebow comes an opportunity for Fort Myers and all of Southwest Florida Tebow fans. He is slated to play this coming Friday, June 30th, thru Monday, July 3, in a four game series against the Fort Myers Miracle. Tebow is expected to start all four games in the series.
“As the day moves on, and we get a chance to breathe and tally it up, we’re gonna be very impressed, trust me,” said Miracle General Manager Andrew Seymour. “I would say we’re a good 30 to 40 percent up from what we are because of the Tebow Effect and, honestly, Monday is never usually this fervent. We were in early preparing but, basically, we haven’t caught our breath, which is exciting. That’s what we’re here for.”
Tickets for the game can be purchased online or at the stadium. Four-pack box seat tickets start at $32 while general admission tickets are $25 for all four days.
