UPDATE, 11:15AM: Bakersfield Blaze General Manager Mike Candela responded to 23ABC about the TMZ story:
TMZ called earlier and said they wanted to see if Tebow could try out for the Blaze. Something we get alot from people. I simply explained to him, he couldn't try out for us rather he must contact the actual MLB teams to do so. We are just a filter where Seattle controls who comes and goes. I preceded to tell him I'd allow him to take BP and shag some fly balls and to talk to our coaches/players. That's pretty easy. But if this miraculously happens, I'm 200% in for this.
Will Bakersfield see Tim Tebow on a local baseball diamond sometime soon? If the Blaze organization had its way, maybe so.
This news comes after the former NFL quarterback announced that he wants to play pro baseball.
The Blaze isn't the only organization interested in Tebow. The Cleveland Indians recently posted a pic of him in one of their uniforms.
Only time will tell if we'll be Tebowing soon at a baseball game in Bakersfield...
