Tim Tebow is hell-bent on playing something somewhere.
After being released by the Philadelphia Eagles last September, the former NFL quarterback is turning his sights towards the MLB, and he'll get his shot next week.
According to USA Today, the 29-year-old Heisman Trophy winner has invited all 30 major league teams to watch him showcase his skills during a private workout in Los Angeles on Aug. 30.
Despite not having played baseball regularly since his junior year of high school in 2004, Tebow has reportedly been training for several months in Scottsdale, Arizona and L.A.
While Tebow struggled at the quarterback position during his short NFL career (he finished the 201l season with the lowest passing completion rate in the league), there has been no debate about his tremendous athleticism.
If a team did pick him up, his baseball journey would likely begin at the minor league level, which would inevitably provide a huge boost in attendance and media attention for whichever team signed him.
USA Today reports that Tebow ended his high school baseball career batting .494, drawing the attention of scouts before ultimately choosing football as his full-time sport.
