The Columbia Fireflies (formerly the Savannah Sand Gnats) of the Class A South Atlantic League, a farm club of the New York Mets, opened their 2016 season at home this evening against the GreenJackets of Augusta, Georgia.
No score through the first inning. Then in the bottom of the second:
In his first at-bat for the Columbia Fireflies, Tim Tebow hit a 2-run homer. That is a real thing that happened #tebow
