With the potential for an NFL career clearly in the rear view mirror, one of football's most polarizing figures, Tim Tebow, announced on Monday his desire to pursue a career playing Major League Baseball. What are the chances we could see him play at Bosse Field? Not a far-fetched as you think.

According to ESPN Insider, Adam Schefter, Tebow, who currently serves as an analyst for the network's college football coverage, has been working out for the past year "in Arizona and Los Angeles to hone his hitting and fielding skills in a sport he has not played on a full-time basis since 2005" where he was "an all-state baseball player in Florida that year and hit .494 as a junior, helping Nease High School reach the final four of the Florida state playoffs."

Many analysts believe the chance of Tebow landing on a MLB team is nearly non-existent, however there could be interest from a minor league or independent league team who would view the addition of the former quarterback as a way to boost ticket sales.

An independent league such as the Frontier League, perhaps?

CBS 44 News Sports Director, Andrew Keesee, asked Evansville Otters manger, Andy McCauley, if there was any chance whatsoever of the club bringing Tebow on board, his answer was pretty clear.

But the Otters aren't the only team in the Frontier League, are they?

Enter the Schaumberg Boomers.

According to the press release on the team's website, the contract offer would put the 29-year-old in the outfield.

This clearly has publicity stunt written all over it, as would any offer from a minor or independent league team, but I don't fault the team for trying. Teams from those leagues don't have the type of funding MLB teams have, therefore they rely heavily on ticket, concessions, and merchandise sales to keep the lights on.

Personally, I don't see Tebow accepting the offer, but let's say he does, you know, for "funsies". That would mean we could see him trot out onto Bosse Field in a Boomers uniform when the two teams face off. The chances of it happening this season would be slim as the two teams aren't scheduled to see each other again in the regular season. The only way it could happen this year is if the two wind up facing off in the Frontier League Championship, which seems unlikely as Schaumburg is currently six games back in the Wild Card chase with less than a month to go in the season.

What do you think? Would you pay to see Tim Tebow play baseball? Let us know in the comments below.
