Tim Tebow is throwing one more Hail Mary in his pro sports career.

The former NFL quarterback will attempt to pursue a career in professional baseball and will host a workout for all 30 MLB teams later this month, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Tebow, who currently works as a broadcaster for ESPN, has been training in Arizona and Los Angeles for nearly a year in a sport he hasn’t played competitively since high school. The soon-to-be 29-year-old was an All-State baseball player in Florida before turning his focus to the gridiron, where he became a Heisman Trophy winner at the University of Florida.

A first-round pick (25th overall) of the Denver Broncos in the 2010 NFL Draft, Tebow played three seasons in the NFL with the Broncos and New York Jets and landed a tryout with the New England Patriots before moving into a career as a college football broadcaster. He attempted one more comeback in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2015, but was released at the end of training camp.
