As I was scrolling down my timeline, this caught my eye! Tim Tebow is a former Heisman Trophy Winner, and currently plays for the New York Mets minor league. Next month he will be representing the Philippines for the World Baseball Classic Qualifiers.
To tie this all together, his parents were missionaries in the Philippines in 1987. He was born in Manila! Who knew?!
The Philippines are in Pool 2 of the World Baseball Classic. In their bracket, they have to face the Czech Republic, Great Britain, New Zealand and Panama. The top two teams will advance to next year’s World Baseball Classic in Tucson, Arizona.
