The former NFL quarterback and devout Christian has been attempting to make a career of baseball. Signed by the New York Mets and trying to move up in the minor leagues, Tebow has been playing with the St. Lucie Mets in Port St. Lucie, Florida.
He already has a knack for managing sporting feats with a storybook huewhile giving his time and resources to those in need. But when Tebow’s squad visited the Charlotte Stone Crabs in Port Charlotte, Florida, on July 29, he simply raised the bar. The Tampa Bay Times even remarked, “You can’t make this stuff up.”
In the top of the seventh inning Tebow was taking practice swings in the on-deck circle, the Times said, when 9-year-old Seth Bosch made his way down from his seat, moved toward Tebow and waved to him. It was a big deal for the little guy. Seth has high-functioning autism and also suffers from neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that produces tumors on the nerve tissue, the Times said. Seth also has a tumor behind his right eye, the paper added, and has a hard time playing sports.
