Tim Tebow greets autistic fan, hits three-run home run
Aug 11 2017 by Francis Osborne
Tebow's St. Lucie Mets were hosting the Charlotte Stone Crabs when a young boy named Seth Bosch made his way to the fence behind home plate, where Tebow was stretching and taking some practice swings in the on-deck circle.
Tebow saw him and took advantage of a break in the action during a conference on the pitching mound, to come over, greet the boy and shake his hand.
Bosch waved at Tebow and, to the child's surprise, the star walked over and shook his hand through the netting.
The football-turned-baseball player has been blasting home runs in the minor leagues for the St. Lucie Mets and inspiring fans along the way.
How India handed Lankans their worst Test defeat
It was a cakewalk for Virat Kohli and his men who sealed the series after winning the second match by an innings and 53 runs. As a result, India are likely to stick to a similar playing XI, with R Ashwin joined in the spinning stakes by Kuldeep Yadav.
Bosch suffers from neurofibromatosis and has high-functioning autism, and his family says that it's tough for him to play sports due to the former condition that causes tumors to grow on nerve tissue.
"When Seth came back to his seat, he was crying", Ileanna Bosch said. 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). I started crying, too.
Just seconds later Tebow proceeded to blast a three-run home run.
So meeting Tebow was a dream, as you can see in the above video. "I think God brought Seth and Tim together".
