In his The first 67 games with Mets' Double-A affiliate team hit Tebow .261 with five home runs and 30 RBIs. He had a strong month of June, 0.38 with a home run and 11 RBIs.
Tebow, a former NFL quarterback, has tried to get into the big leagues. At the start of the season, Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson said he thought Tebow had a strong blow to it.
"This experiment will not last forever, but it has made significant progress," Alderson told Newsday in February. "Someone asked me if I think he's going to be a major league player at some point, so I think he'll play in the big leagues, so that's my guess."
The all-star game in the Eastern League will take place on Wednesday, July 11th.
