1. As for the rest of the game, he ended up going 1 for 5 - .200 baby!

I want to hear what the pitcher has to say, and what he threw, after all, it was his first pitch, too.

3. Down the road, if the pitcher and Tiebow ever amount to much....

you know every announcer will remind us of that one pitch, not unlike Willie Mays getting first career hit off Boston's ace left-hander, Warren Spahn.

Fun factoid: Mays and Spahn ultimately became teammates.

6. Did you catch this Tweet?

Tim Hanlon @TimfromDa70s
Tim Tebow hit a Home Run in his 1st professional at bat, but due to his religious convictions, he had to stop at second base.

10. Supposedly A 91mph Fastball

However...
Watch the pitching motion. That is supposed to be slider that just doesn't do anything. It's a grooved pitch. A flat slider, and it doesn't look 91 to me.

More hyperbole from the Tebow hype machine.
