This minor league team was merciless in mocking Tim Tebow all game

This minor league team was merciless in mocking Tim Tebow all game

The Class-A affiliate of the New York Yankees took on Tebow (quite literally) and his Columbia Fireflies over the weekend and didn't appear to be very hospitable hosts.

The RiverDogs added insurance in the eighth on back-to-back doubles from third baseman Angel Aguilar and right fielder Isiah Gilliam, making it 5-1.

The RiverDogs blasted the former Heisman Trophy victor during his visit to "The Joe" almost every chance they got.

Saturday night, quarterback turned Mets minor league outfielder Tim Tebow went 1 for 4 with a strikeout to extend his hitting streak to a modest five games.

The RiverDogs really enjoyed having Tebow in town.

BAT TOSS: Tim Tebow's most impressive feat may have been the inadvertent bat toss Saturday night during a 3-0 loss at Charleston. Charlie T. Tebowing, Tebow bat-flipping, it was a good one.

Tim Tebow is still trying to give baseball a shot, and things are going pretty much exactly as expected by scouts and respected baseball evaluators.

The RiverDogs made sure the mockery was seen by as wide of an audience as possible, sharing all of the antics on social media.

Oh, and the at-bat finished with Tebow striking out. Charleston's mascot, Charlie T. River Dog, piled it on by wearing "John 3:16" eyeblack, the same bible verse Tebow wore during the 2008 National Championship Game against Oklahoma.
