    Northeast Florida's favorite son Tim Tebow had a big day at the plate on Wednesday.

    Tebow got his first home run during his second game with the St. Lucie Mets, the second game of a doubleheader.

    Random fact: The homer was Tebow's fourth in his minor league career. Michael Jordan hit three in 127 games during his lone minor league season in 1994. 

    This comes just days after Tebow was promoted to the St. Lucie Mets from the Mets' South Atlantic League affiliate, the Columbia Fireflies.

    He got off to a good start in his debut with the Fireflies as well, hitting a home run in his first at-bat in April.
