Tim Tebow Goes 0-For-3 With 2 Strikeouts In Spring Debut

It's not always easy to be Tim Tebow.

Michelle Marie Thompson, 36, of Arvada, Colorado, was arrested for trespassing on February 28, according to Port St. Lucie Police Department reports.

When the officer asked again if the relationship was friendly, platonic, romantic or matrimonial, Thompson giggled and said "all of the above". When asked why she wanted to see him, Thompson said she and Tebow were in a relationship. Police told her to leave the stadium and not return, but two days later she allegedly did; she was arrested that time and charged with trespassing.

Following a three-year National Football League career that saw him play for the Broncos and Jets, Tebow decided last year to try his hand at baseball, a sport he excelled at in high school.

When an officer asked for her driver's license, they noticed a small sticker on the back that stated "I (heart symbol) Jesus/Tim Tebow".

Tebow briefly questioned the home plate umpire on each of his strikeouts, saying later that he questioned whether the pitches weren't outside the strike zone. She's still in jail, according to TCPalm.com, with $750 bail.

Two days later, on February 28, Robert Kasdon, the Mets vice president of security, reported Thompson had ignored the warning and was back on the property. Thompson responded, "All of the above", according to police. The Heisman Trophy victor won two national championships at Florida and played in the NFL from 2010-2012 and later joined ESPN as a college football analyst.

It has not been announced when or whether Tebow, who is in the Mets' minor-league camp, will play in another major-league exhibition game.

"It was embarrassing what Tebow did before his first at-bat against righthander Rick Porcello, strolling toward the Red Sox' on-deck circle, clueless about where to go". He played in the Instructional League at Port St. Lucie past year before reporting to the Arizona Fall League, where the southpaw former quarterback batted a paltry.194 in 19 games (12-for-62) for the Scottsdale Scorpions.
