Tim Tebow is at it again.

Tebow hit a walk-off home run to give the St. Lucie Mets a 5-4 win Thursday over the Dayton Tortugas in a seven-inning game. 

Tebow, who blasted the homer on the first pitch, is riding an 11-game hitting streak. 

 

The home run was his sixth of his minor league stint and the first walk-off of his career.

Since being promoted to High-A, Tebow is hitting .327 in 16 games, with an OPS of .972. The numbers are drastic improvements over his time in Low-A with the Columbia Fireflies, where he was hitting only .220 before his promotion.

Nevertheless, the former football star is still an attraction wherever he goes, including Hagerstown, Maryland.
