Tim Tebow Fly Ball Taken Up Into Heaven

COLUMBIA, SC - According to reports, a fly ball hit by Columbia Fireflies minor league outfielder Tim Tebow was taken up into Heaven Thursday, never to return to earth.

Sources confirm this is the first time a baseball has miraculously ascended and disappeared into glory during a game.

During his 3rd at bat in the seventh inning, the former NFL quarterback swung at a high fastball and sent it soaring toward left field. Multiple witnesses report that just as the ball reached its apex, something like a fiery chariot descended from Heaven, scooped up the baseball, and disappeared into the Columbia sky.

The umpires initially signaled for a home run - his second of the game after going yard in his very first at bat - but upon further review, Tebow was called out, as the ball never officially cleared the left field fence.

"I guess God wanted a souvenir," Tebow told reporters after the game. "He's the reason I'm here, so I'm glad he got one. I just wish I could have signed it for him."
