Tim Tebow’s heart and flair for the dramatic were both on display July 29 when the quarterback-turned-minor-leaguer took the field for the St. Lucie Mets.
While standing in the on-deck circle during a game against the Charlotte Stone Crabs, Tebow was approached by nine-year old (now 10 after an Aug. 6 birthday) Seth Bosch. Bosch has several medical ailments, including high-functioning autism, neurofibromatosis (a genetic disorder that produces tumors on the nerve tissue), and a tumor behind his right eye.
Tebow reached through the screen behind home plate and shook Bosch’s hand, the young boy then returning to his seat with tears in his eyes. Minutes later, Tebow stepped to the plate and launched a three-run home run to left center.
Seth’s mother, Ileanna Bosch, recorded the unbelievable series of events and posted the video to her Facebook page.
“When Seth came back to his seat, he was crying,” she told the Tampa Bay Times. “And then Tim hit the homer. I started crying, too.”
“How does that happen? I think God brought Seth and Tim together.”
