I can’t remember the last time I wrote a post about someone hitting a batting practice home run, but — wait? What? Oh yeah, I did it just this morning. Never mind.

Anyway, Tim Tebow hit a batting practice home run today! He homered to right field during BP down in Port St. Lucie. Reporters on the scene said that someone went and got the ball afterward, so check out either MLB’s auction page or Tebow’s own website to see if it’s up for sale, authenticated and autographed for, like, $100 soon.

In other news, Tebow spoke to the press again after practice. You’ll be happy to know that he went shopping at Target last night, purchasing some almonds and La Croix. Which is what I snack on while I blog all day so I’m basically a professional athlete. He should go to Costco for the La Croix, though. The 24 packs are hella cheap, even if they only sell lime.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.

The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.

The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.

Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
