The St. Lucie Mets' Tim Tebow proves once again that he is one of the nicest people (and athletes) around.
Tebow was about to take his at-bat on July 29 until a 9-year-old fan approached him for a handshake. Tebow stopped and shook the boy, Seth Bosch's, hand through the net.
Bosh has high-functioning autism and also suffers from neurofibromatosis. The boy has a difficult time participating in sports.
"When Seth came back to his seat, he was crying," Seth's mother, Ileanna Bosch, said. "And then Tim hit the homer. I started crying, too. How does that happen? I think God brought Seth and Tim together."
When Tebow finally did hit the mound, he hit a three-run homer!
Illeanna and Seth are heard in the video, before Tebow slams the ball, saying "he's going to hit a home run now!"
Tebow’s three-run homer lifted the St. Lucie Mets to a 10-3 victory over the Charlotte Stone Crabs.
