Tim Tebow's rough start with the Syracuse Mets got a little better Sunday.
The former NFL quarterback hit his first Triple-A home run against the Columbus Clippers after a 26-game opening stretch where he was hitting just .131.
He even got the traditional silent treatment from his teammates.

It was one of just two runs the team scored in its 8-2 loss.
"Last year just at the start was so disappointing, Day 1 getting injured, and then it's like an uphill battle the whole time, just very frustrating," he said in March. "This year I feel like it's a very different atmosphere, just being able to learn and work and improve, and also show that as well.
"I'm all in on doing this."
It'll take some work for Tebow to continue to improve. Through 33 games so far this season, he has a .154/.214/.202 slash line and just 16 hits.
