I have been a Tim Tebow fan since 2010. I grew up in Florida and I actually remember watching him receive his Heisman Trophy.
Not only is Tebow enthusiastic and compassionate in everything he does, but he also loves to express his faith as well. I have always loved to watch his games for both his skill and his personality.
Once again, he has shown just how kind hearted he really is by stopping his warming up routine to shake an autistic boy’s hand.
Tim Tebow stopped warming up before his at-bat to shake an autistic boy’s hand and followed it up with a monster three-run home run, a new heartwarming video showed.
Tebow, who plays for the St. Lucie Mets, a minor league baseball team affiliated with the New York Mets, was about to take his at-bat on July 29 until a young boy, Seth Bosch – 9 at the time – approached him for a handshake. Tebow stopped and shook Bosch’s hand through the net.
Bosh has high-functioning autism and also suffers from neurofibromatosis according to the Tampa Bay Times. The boy has a difficult time participating in sports.
The boy’s mother, Ileanna Bosh said, “When Seth came back to his seat, he was crying,” she continued, “And then Tim hit the homer. I started crying, too. How does that happen? I think God brought Seth and Tim together.”
Tebow’s three-run homer lifted the St. Lucie Mets to a 10-3 victory over the Charlotte Stone Crabs.
Here is the heart touching clip:
