Former Heisman trophy winner, Tim Tebow, will begin his minor league career with the Columbia Fireflies, the Class A affiliate of the New York Mets.

Columbia opens the season April 6 at home against Augusta in a four-game series. This year’s team will head to Columbia on April 1 with a fan fest set for the following day.

He said how long Tebow’s stay will last will depend how comfortable the Mets’ organization is with his progress.
