Tim Tebow is a huge box office draw in the minor leagues

VIDEO: Tim Tebow greets autistic boy in on-deck circle, hits home run in next at-bat

Say what you want about Tim Tebow, the baseball player.

Seth, a huge Tebow fan, falls on the autism spectrum and has neurofibromatosis, a rare genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerve tissue. Seth, who was 9 at the time (he turned 10 on August 6), was at the game with his parents and his younger sister.

Tebow, as usual, made sure to greet the youngster, which ultimately made him cry tears of joy. That brought a cheer from the crowd at Charlotte Sports Park, and it thrilled Ileanna Bosch, the boy's mother, who was filming the exchange.


After the game, Tebow and Seth met again where Ileanna took photos of the two together. Fennelly wrote that the boy "has a hard time playing sports", but Tebow helped him experience a magical moment at the ballpark. "And then Tim hit the homer, I started crying too".

Tebow subsequently pulverized a three-run homer to the delight of everyone in attendance. Then he stepped up to the plate and hit a 3 run bomb.

And Tebow may have had an even bigger impact in road games. The Mets were criticized for making a publicity stunt when they signed Tebow, but if that's all it was, it was a profitable stunt. Tebow hasn't exactly lit it up at the plate, but he has hit better since being promoted, improving his batting average (from.220 to.248) and OPS (.648-.725).
