• Tebow tryout draws mixed reviews


    LOS ANGELES: Tim Tebow’s stab at switching from the football gridiron to big league baseball drew mixed reviews of both his mastery and motivation. A former Heisman Trophy winner as the top collegiate player who briefly sparked “Tebow-mania” during his playing days with the NFL’s Denver Broncos, Tebow is attempting a sports comeback at the age of 29. He last played baseball in high school, but attracted 46 scouts from 28 major league teams to a workout on Tuesday at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Critics called the entire exercise a publicity stunt by a player who found limited success in the NFL, becoming a celebrity in part for his evangelical views and a widely imitated kneeling move that became known as “Tebowing.” Tebow, who has been working lately as a television commentator, insisted otherwise. “The goal would be to have a career in the big leagues,” he said. “I mean that’s the goal, right?”
