Tim Tebow has given up on his NFL dreams for a chance to play baseball professionally. If and when that doesn’t work out, maybe for his next act, the former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback can try his hand as a faith healer.
That’s not to make light of the story about a fan who was having a seizure after Tebow’s New York Mets debut in the Arizona Fall League on Tuesday. Nor is it meant to diminish Tebow’s good deed here, which was staying by the fan’s side until medical personnel could arrive and do their thing. Here’s some video from that scary situation which was apparently shot by a friend of the man in distress.

Of course, based on one account of the incident, you would think Tebow put his hands on this person and all of a sudden he was healed. At least, that’s the impression Kari Van Horn for ABC15 might have given some followers, intentionally or not.
Tebow signing autographs. Fan has what looks like seizure. Not moving. Tebow puts hand on him and says a prayer. Man breathes. WOW.

Regardless of what happened here, one thing there is no debating is Tebow was being a genuinely good person here, first by sticking around to sign autographs after the game, then hanging around to make sure the fan was okay.
What remains unknown after one game is whether Tebow has any shot at making this baseball thing work. He went 0 for 3 on Tuesday.
