VIDEO: Tim Tebow greets autistic boy, then hits home run for him

If it happened in a movie we’d say it was unrealistic:

Tebow was on-deck during the July 29 game when Seth Bosch, a young boy with high-functioning autism who just turned 10, took his shot to try and get the ballplayers attention.

Bosch waved at Tebow and, to the child’s surprise, the star walked over and shook his hand through the netting. The boy, who has a tumor behind his right eye which makes it difficult to play sports, went back to his seat next to his parents with tears of joy streaming down his face.

Tebow, being Tebow, then went up to the plate and hit a three-run home run moments later.

“When Seth came back to his seat, he was crying,” Seth Bosch’s mother Ileanna told the Tampa Bay Times. “And then Tim hit the homer. I started crying, too. How does that happen? I think God brought Seth and Tim together.”
