Tim Tebow Greets Autistic Boy Mid-Game, Then Hits Home Run

VIDEO: Tim Tebow greets autistic boy in on-deck circle, hits home run in next at-bat

That calculation has been justified, in the sense that Tebow, who enjoyed a legendary football career at the University of Florida before washing out in brief stops with the Broncos and Jets, has been a major draw in the minors.

They shook hands, exchanged a quick hello, and then Tebow got back to work.

The young fan-over whelmed with emotion after waving Tebow over and shaking his hand through the net. Bosch has high-functioning autism, neurofibromatosis, and has a tumor behind his right eye.

"When Seth came back to his seat, he was crying", Ileanna Bosch, Seth's mother, told the newspaper.

Tebow's three-run homer lifted the St. Lucie Mets to a 10-3 victory over the Charlotte Stone Crabs. "I started crying, to", she recalled. How does that happen? The boy, who has a tumor behind his right eye which makes it hard to play sports, went back to his seat next to his parents with tears of joy streaming down his face. "I think God brought Seth and Tim together".

Though the game took place more than a week ago - and Tim Tebow has since gone into something of a late-summer slump - the video went viral this week after Ileanna shared it and discussed the moment with local media. And you can't put a price tag on a "ticket" like that.
