Tim Tebow will play for the same minor league baseball team that Michael Jordan did

The Scorpions’ first game is Oct. 11. I can feel the excitement in my bones.

Former Denver Broncos quarterback and now low-level minor-league baseball player Tim Tebow will report to the Scottsdale Scorpions of the Arizona Fall League on Sunday.

Tebow, who signed a deal with the New York Mets in September, is going to spend the fall honing his baseball skills there, according to the club. The Scottsdale Scorpions might sound familiar to you if…

A) You know an inordinate amount about baseball, or

B) You recognize the name because Michael Jordan played for them

Yes, that’s right: Tebow will play for the same Fall League team as Jordan because TEBOW, TOO, IS THE CHOSEN ONE!!!

Just kidding, it’s merely coincidence. There are only six teams in the Fall League.

Jordan played for the Scorpions in 1994 when he finished up his season with the White Sox’ Double-A affiliate. Now Tebow is making the trip down to Scottsdale as well.

The Scorpions’ first game is Oct. 11. I can feel the excitement in my bones.
