SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Mike Edwards Jersey . -- Tim Tebow hit a ball through the left side of the infield, looped another to the same area. He fouled off a pitch and sent a grounder the other way.Then it came. Swinging inside-out, Tebow lined a hard shot toward the line in left field.Atta boy, one of his new teammates shouted from behind the batting cage.Tebows journey from star quarterback to budding baseball player made its latest stop in the desert Monday night, when he worked out for two hours with the Arizona Fall Leagues Scottsdale Scorpions.Playing baseball under the lights for the first time in more than a decade, Tebow took some fly balls in the outfield and went through five rounds of batting practice. He hit some good, some not-so-good -- but hes still early in this transformation from football to baseball.It was good getting in here, meeting everybody, getting a feel for it, swing the bat a little, Tebow said. I know its going to be a process.Tebow was one of the best quarterbacks in college football at Florida, winning a pair of national championships and the 2007 Heisman Trophy. He played three seasons with the Denver Broncos and New York Jets before his NFL career petered out.Tebow moved on to become an analyst for the SEC Network and announced last month that he would pursue a professional baseball career. Though he had not played competitive baseball since his senior year in high school, the New York Mets took a chance on Tebow, signing him to a minor league contract and hoping his exceptional athletic ability would translate to the baseball diamond.The 29-year-old Tebow hit a home run on the first pitch he saw in the Florida instructional league and went 4 for 14 in three games before the league was cut short due to Hurricane Matthew.The move to the Arizona Fall League will be a big step up in competition.The league is filled with promising minor leaguers who are there to get more seasoning, a stopping point for former No. 1 draft picks Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper. Michael Jordan also appeared in the AFL when he made his brief foray into baseball in 1994, and this years league includes Boston Red Sox infielder Yoan Moncada, rated the top overall prospect in baseball.Theres a lot of great players out here, so for me its about working hard and trying to improve, get better and remember its a process, Tebow said. But also to enjoy it. Its fun to come out and play baseball every day.Tebow arrived in Arizona on Sunday and had about a dozen fans waiting outside Scottsdale Stadium for him Monday night. After stretching and throwing with the Scorpions -- a collection of players from various big league teams -- he took some grounders and fly balls in the outfield, fluidly moving to cut off the balls hit at him.In the batting cage, the left-handed Tebow needed a bit of time to warm up, hitting everything to the left side early in the session before pulling a few shots to the right side.Next up: His first game, Tuesday in Glendale.Scorpions manager Tom Goodwin wants Tebow to play as much as physically possible so he can find his rhythm in the field and at the plate. He will play for the Scorpions during the week and continue to work for the SEC Network on the weekends.Tebow will play left field and bat seventh in Tuesdays game.Hes going to have to get ready for baseball activity, said Goodwin, the Mets first base coach. O. J. Howard Jersey . It was the second consecutive win for the Pacers (2-5), who lost their first five preseason games. Jeff Teague led the Hawks (1-5) with 17 points and eight assists and Al Horford had 12 points and seven rebounds. Mike Scott scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half. Devin White Womens Jersey . Arsenal failed to take full advantage of its main rivals stumbles on Saturday as substitute Gerard Deulofeu levelled with a hard shot from a tight angle in the 84th minute to give Everton a deserved point. Ahead of a crucial fortnight that will see them play against Napoli in the Champions League, Manchester City and Chelsea, Arsenal leads by five points ahead of Liverpool and Chelsea. http://www.authenticbuccaneerspro.com/Mike-evans-buccaneers-jersey/ . Westbrook has missed 27 games since having a procedure on Dec. 27 to deal with swelling in his injured right knee — the third operation on the knee in nine months. MINNEAPOLIS -- This one was worth the wait for the Minnesota Twins.Joe Mauer raced home with the winning run when Max Keplers comebacker ricocheted off pitcher Joe Colons glove in the 11th inning to give the Twins a rain-delayed 5-4 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Saturday night.If youre going to wait that long, its nice to get out there and get a win in, Mauer said after a game that was delayed by rain for 2 hours, 5 minutes.Colon (0-1) reached behind his back to try to glove the bouncer and knocked it down. His throw home beat Mauer, but catcher Yan Gomes couldnt handle it and was charged with an error on the play.Im thankful he knocked it down and it got away from him, otherwise they might have turned a double play on me, Kepler said.Brian Dozier drove in two runs for the Twins, and Trevor May (1-2) pitched the 11th to earn the win. The game was delayed with two outs in the top of the 11th inning. After the long delay, it took the Twins just 13 minutes to win.Carlos Santana had three hits to extend his hitting streak to a career-high 13 games and drove in two runs for the Indians.Cleveland committed three errors, including Santanas at first base in the seventh inning that allowed one run to score. Minnesota tied it on a single up the middle by Dozier.In his second career appearance, Colon walked Mauer, gave up a long double to Miguel Sano and then intentionally walked Dozier before Keplers comebacker ended a long night.It looked to me like Gomer didnt look it into the glove, Indians manager Terry Francona said. I didnt think we had a play at first, and instead of taking an out like a first baseman, just kind of short-armed it a little bit.Trevor Bauer gave up four runs -- three earned -- and seven hits with six strikeouts and three walks in six innings for Cleveland.Tyler Duffey allowed four runs and six hits in 6 1/3 innings with three walks and two strikeouts for the Twins.SCARY MOMENTThe game stopped for several minutes in the seventh when a young boy sitting just to the right of the Indians dugout was hit in the head by a line drive off the bat of Mike Napoli.The ball caromed high in the air a full section over, annd ballpark personnel rushed to the boys side. Ronde Barber Youth Jersey. Napoli and the rest of the players on the field looked on with concern, but the boy appeared to be in decent shape as the man he was with carried him up the aisle and to the concourse.The boy grabbed his hat and put it back on his head and appeared to be alert and looking around as they exited the seating area.Its a scary thing and when I saw it was a little kid, I wasnt even thinking about baseball, Napoli said. I was just hoping he was all right. Hopefully I can find out his name and see if hes all right and maybe take care of him a little bit.SANOS DSanos double in the 11th moved Mauer into position to score and helped the third baseman atone for some trouble on defense.Sano made a couple of nifty plays with his arm, including a superb, barehanded pickup and strong throw to get Tyler Naquin in the second inning. But Sano also dropped an easy popup off the bat of Francisco Lindor in foul territory in the seventh inning for an error, then was charged with another one when he muffed a hot shot from Rajai Davis in the eighth.Sano has seven errors in his last eight games.TRAINERS ROOMIndians: After playing on Friday night in his rehab assignment, OF Michael Brantley was given the day off Saturday. Francona said Brantley wanted to play as he works his way back from a right shoulder injury, but the training staff didnt want to push it too early. He is expected to play again on Sunday. ... RHP Zach McAllister, on the DL since July 7 with right hip discomfort, will start a rehab assignment on Monday.Twins: CF Byron Buxton was in the lineup for a second straight day and manager Paul Molitor said the knee injury that occurred when Buxton crashed into the wall three games before the All-Star break is behind him now.UP NEXTTwins RHP Kyle Gibson (2-5, 5.02 ERA) will face Indians RHP Josh Tomlin (9-2, 3.51) in the series finale. Tomlin has not started since June 6 because of the All-Star break. He gave up eight runs in his last outing against the Tigers. ' ' '
