New York NY — New York Mets minor leaguer Tim Tebow announced that he is retiring from professional baseball, five years after his career in football ended. He left the NFL in 2016 after no team wanted to touch him with a 10-yard pole. “You know what, I don’t really like football anyway, what I really want to do is play baseball,” he said at the time. Flash forward to Wednesday, after no major league team wants him, he has now revealed the truth to the world. “I used those sports to get to the sport I actually, truly, really, really, for actual real this time wanted to do and that is to be a professional hockey player.” He realized at a young age he doesn’t do well with sports involving balls so hockey would be the path to success with the least resistance. He didn’t want to take the easy road though so he trudged along in baseball and football to gain some much-needed experience in humility before taking the leap that he wanted to all along. He will begin training right away, starting with trying on skates for the first time with the eventual goal of making it to the NHL. He would love to be named in the same sentence as Marty Lemiuex, Warren Gretzky, and Gordie House. If he succeeds, he will fulfill a lifelong dream and if he doesn’t, he will proudly be the guy who miserably failed in three pro sports.
