I got caught up in Tebow mania. It was a crazy carnival atmosphere and Tebow did not disappoint. He hit a 2-run RBI single that electrified the crowd. I put together a video that has pictures as well as video from his first at bat and the 2-run single. You can watch that video HERE. Advertisements
Before the game: Lines to get in-long before the gates open-this is the handicapped line. The concourse is as full as spring Training. These people only want Tebow’s autograph. (And they were rude.)

MLB reports that the Atlanta Braves have signed former Phillies’ 1B Ryan Howard to a contract! The report states that Howard will report to Braves’ extended spring training in Kissamee then to AAA Gwinnett in Georgia. Guess those $80k in doorknobs won’t pay for themselves!
