Tim Tebow is known for being an all around great guy. He became famous several years ago for his out spoken faith on the football field. If you don't remember, he was the guy that had all the verse references written under his eye during his college career.
During the 2009 National Championship game, Tim Tebow had written the verse "John 3:16" under his eyes and Google received over 90 million hits on that verse during the game. That's what you call major influence.
According to Wikipedia - Tim played college football at the University of Florida, winning the Heisman Trophy in 2007 and appearing on BCS National Championship-winning teams during the 2006 and 2008 seasons. Tebow was selected by the Denver Broncos in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft and spent two seasons with the team.
Today, he plays baseball for the St. Lucie Mets. Beyond his accomplishments on the field, Tim is known as a compassionate, and caring guy. That's why what happened on July 29th at Charlotte Sports Park during a game between the Mets and the Stone Crabs comes as no surprise because of his great character.
Tim and Seth Bosch had never met, but this 10-year-old autistic boy was a big fan of Tebow. Tebow was on-deck, taking a practice swing, waiting to hit during the seventh inning when Seth saw a window of opportunity and took it.
Seth was attending the game with his parents and little sister. Seth, who has high-functioning autism, and also suffers from neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that produces tumors on the nerve tissue. He has a tumor behind his right eye, because of the tumor he has a hard time playing any sports but that doesn't stop him from enjoying them.
Seth made his way through the crowd of fans over to where Tim was by the Met’s on-deck circle. He started to wave at Tebow to come over, and to his surprise, he did! Tim shook his hand through the netting and returned to hit a three-run homer. "When Seth came back to his seat, he was crying," Ileanna Bosch, Seth's mother, said. "And then Tim hit the homer. I started crying, too. How does that happen? I think God brought Seth and Tim together." Needless to say, Tim Tebow is Seth’s hero. Watch the video below.
