Tebowmania has left Lakewood but I can tell you this: the hype over Tim Tebow’s one and only visit to FirstEnergy Park was very much for real. where he’s making an impact is at the box office and I’m sure all the teams in the South Atlantic League hope he stays with the Mets Class “A” affiliate for as long as possible.
Rain delayed the inevitable this weekend at the Jersey Shore with wind and rain heading north towards New Jersey along with Tim Tebow and the Columbia Fireflies who are in town until Tuesday to play the Lakewood BlueClaws. On Sunday he discussed his professional and personal journey to this point.
The Lakewood BlueClaws (Philadelphia Phillies Low-A Team) weekend series with the Met's Low-A Team, The Columbia Fireflies will be filled to the brim with fans and excitement for at least a couple of reasons. Minor League rivalry matchup? Maybe. Watch the red-hot BlueClaws prospects continue dominating early in the season? Perhaps. Watch 29-year old Tim Tebow play outfield for the Fireflies? Mostly certainly yes.
From the gridiron to the baseball diamond, former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow's dream of playing in the major league's one day heads to Lakewood this weekend, but if you want to go to a game at First Energy Park buy your tickets sooner rather than later.
The BlueClaws begin their 16th season in Lakewood tonight and are as much a part of summer at the Jersey Shore as beaches, boardwalks, barbecues and bennies and part of a lifestyle that includes Six Flags, Monmouth Park, the Stone Pony, LBI and Jenkinson’s.
They have become a summertime staple at the Jersey Shore just like boardwalks, Barnegat Lighthouse, Salt Water Taffy and the Stone Pony. It’s hard to believe it was 15 years ago this week that the BlueClaws took the field in Lakewood for their inaugural home opener.
