Minor league team's promise to fans: Tebow + 3 strikeouts = free Whoppers

If you like free food and watching Tim Tebow attempt to play baseball, the Greenville Drive may have the perfect promotion for you.

On Tuesday, the Boston Red Sox Class A affiliate tweeted that when Tebow's new team -- the Columbia Fireflies (the Mets' Class A affiliate) -- comes to town June 13-15, fans in attendance could win free Burger King Whoppers if the 29-year-old strikes out three times in a game during the series.

Naturally, the Fireflies responded with a screenshot of an old tweet from the Drive:

Earlier this week, New York Mets manager Terry Collins announced Tebow would be assigned to the Fireflies, the Mets' affiliate in the South Atlantic League.

"I am excited about continuing the journey. I learned so much this spring working with T.C. [Terry Collins], Kevin Long and Tom Goodwin," Tebow said in a statement. "I hear so many good things about the City of Columbia. I hear the stadium is great. I look forward to coming there to make an impact on the field and the community."

Tebow appeared in seven games for the New York Mets during spring training, batting .200 with four hits and six strikeouts.
