Former University of Florida quarterback and now professional baseball player Tim Tebow, now a member of the St. Lucie Mets, is scheduled play at Roger Dean Stadium on July 7 against the Jupiter Hammerheads.

Tebow was promoted Sunday to the St. Lucie team from the Columbia Fireflies, the Mets’ low-single-A minor league affiliate.

On Sunday, Tebow homered in the second game of a doubleheader for St. Lucie.

Tebow also hit a single, finishing the two games 3-for-5 with the homer, two RBIs, and a walk.

The Mets lost both games.

Tebow was selected by the Denver Broncos in the first round of the 2010 National Football League draft and spent two seasons with the team.

He also played for the New York JetsĀ  in 2012.
