Tebow batted seventh in the order, and his debut homer came in the first inning with two men on base.
The home run gave the Ponies a 5-0 lead.
After his big home run, ESPN provided comments that Tebow made about his performance and his continued effort to improve at the game. "It's a great day and it was a fun day, but it's just one day".
Tebow hit.226 with eight home runs in 126 minor league games a year ago. "We look forward to having him perform and move up the system, which he's doing". That's why he's here - moving up the chain. He was hampered by a left ankle sprain and had been used exclusively as a designated hitter or pinch hitter.
As reported by UPI and other sources, it took just one pitch for Tebow to hit the long ball.

Tebow spent last season between low and high Class-A ball, batting.226 with eight homers and 52 RBI in 126 games. "That's kind of the name of the game, finding a spot where he's comfortable in the hitting zone".
"Any time you have support, our entire team is feeling really good", Tebow said.
Then, when moved up in June of previous year to join the St. Lucie Mets, Tebow again hit a ball over the fence in his first day on the job. He went 1-18 with 11 strikeouts with the big league team during spring training.
While some may have questioned his promotion, Tebow, 30, remained optimistic. He works very hard at his craft, and his passion and work ethic rub off on other players.
