Tim Tebow could play for Mets in spring training

OXON HILL, Md. (AP) Don't be surprised if the New York Mets sneak Tim Tebow into some spring training action.

Manager Terry Collins said he'd like Tebow to play in spring training games even though the former NFL quarterback has a long ways to go in his transition to baseball. Tebow may be a mainstay in Mets minor league camp, but Collins knows people - especially close to where Tebow won the Heisman Trophy at the University of Florida - want to see him play.

"He's a star in Florida - he should be," Collins said Tuesday. "Our players, they're athletes, too. They're fans, too. They would probably like to know how to run a quarterback sneak one day."
