Tim Tebow Hits Home Run After Moving Hug with Autistic Boy
Even if you're not a baseball fan you'll love this sweet story.
Tim Tebow may be known as a football player. Now, we can see he's a true all-star in baseball as well—both on and off the field.
Tebow, now a player for the minor league Lucie Mets', was enjoying a regular game against the Charlotte Stone Crabs on July 29, in Port Charlotte, Florida. As he was warming up in the on-deck circle, he spotted a young boy waving. Little did he know that the young boy was Seth Bosch, who has autism and a genetic disorder that creates tumors on his nerve tissue, including one behind his eye.

Tebow greeted the now 10-year-old (he celebrated his birthday earlier this week) and visibly made an impact on Seth, who has a difficult time playing sports. "When Seth came back to his seat, he was crying," Ileanna Bosch, Seth's mother, said to the Tampa Bay Times.
What happened next was supremely heartwarming. Tebow took the plate. Boom! He hit a three-run homer. "I started crying, too. How does that happen? I think God brought Seth and Tim together," Bosch also commented of the event. If we were the betting type, we sure would wager our chips it had something to do with being moved by his heartwarming exchange with Seth. Way to go, Mr. Tebow.
