Tim Tebow homered on the first pitch he saw as a professional baseball player on Wednesday in his New York Mets instructional league debut against the St. Louis Cardinals club in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

Tebow hit a high fastball in the bottom of the first inning over the left field fence off Cardinals prospect John Kilichowski, a left-hander who pitched for Vanderbilt University and two minor league affiliates for the Cardinals this year.

Tebow finished 1 for 6 at the plate. The 2007 college football Heisman Trophy winner also grounded into a double play, grounded out to short and flew out to center and left field.

He hit a slow roller to third base in his fifth at-bat in the fifth inning, nearly beating out the throw.

The Mets face the Miami Marlins instructional team on Thursday.
