Say what you want about Tim Tebow's ability as a baseball player. The fact is, people want to watch him play.
Baseball America reports that while Tebow was with the Columbia Fireflies in the South Atlantic League, attendance at Fireflies' games (home and away) accounted for 22.5 percent of the league's total attendance.
As Baseball American puts it, "There are 14 teams in the Sally League this year, but through Tebow’s final game on June 25, nearly one of every four fans who have walked through the gate at a Sally League game has done so to see Tebow’s Columbia Fireflies play."
