Elite Kyle Brodziak Jersey Tim Tebow is still here, and he is still doing Tim Tebow things like being exceedingly nice to every fan he sees and smiling that gosh-darn sheepish smile while he heads to the batter’s box because he’s just so happy to be playing the game of baseball.
The latest example of Tebow filling the heartwarming gestures quota for the entire St. Lucie Mets squad happened on Thursday, when he greeted a young fan before heading to the plate.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, the interaction happened back on July 29. However, it appears the video was only released recently for everyone to enjoy.
During the sweet moment, Seth Bosch (then 9 years old) got Tebow’s attention during a delay that was due to a conference on the mound, and Tebow went over to the young boy.
Elite Sterling Moore Jersey Rounding out the contestants are Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez, Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas, Minnesota Twins slugger Miguel Sano, and Colorado Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon.
Stanton is the only participant this year with any Home Run Derby experience. His seven competitors are all in their first Derby.
As defending champion, Stanton drew the top seed, with the other seven ranked by their seasonal home run total through July 4. The event is three rounds of single-elimination, head-to-head action, with the eight-team field first reducing to four players, then to two for the final round.
ESPN will provide on-site coverage throughout the day on Monday, including an hour-long episode of ‘Baseball Tonight’ from Marlins Park before the Home Run Derby begins. In addition to the ESPN telecast, ESPN2 will televise the Spanish language broadcast, with Ernesto Jerez, Eduardo Perez, and Marly Rivera on the call.
