What an awesome guy! Tim Tebow took time to help a fan who suffered a seizure while the football-turned-baseball star was signing autographs after a Fall League game in Arizona on Oct. 11. Watch a video of Tim’s heroism right here!
After Tim made his Arizona Fall League debut with the Scottsdale Scorpions, he stuck around to sign autographs for fans. As he was signing, though, a man in the stands suffered a seizure and collapsed to the ground. Tim, 29, quickly stopped signing and rushed to the man’s side. Not only did Tim wait with the fan until paramedics arrived, but he also prayed as the man was unconscious after the seizure — and suddenly the man breathed again! Seriously, how amazing is that?

Tim didn’t have a very good baseball performance in the game, going 0 for 3 at the plate and crashing into the outfield wall while attempting to catch a ball. But no matter how he did on the field, surely fans were impressed with Tim when it came to interacting with fans. In fact, he was the only player to help the fallen man out — that’s saying something for his sportsmanship!
As if Tim wasn’t sweet enough for being so attentive to the man (who said his name was Brendan) he took his efforts to an even greater level once the man had regained his bearings. He held conversation with the fan until an ambulance arrived, noticing that there was a baseball on the ground. The man had dropped the ball upon having the seizure, so Tim picked it up and signed it for him. Then he proceeded to take off his wristbands to sign them, also gifting those to the man. This is just too sweet!
In the 15 minutes Tim spent with the fan, he learned that the man has a brain tumor. Continuing his heroic efforts, Tim told the man, “I’ll be praying for you, O.K. By name.”
Tim is part of the Scottsdale Scorpions because of his recent deal with the New York Mets, who signed him to a minor league contract in September. Even if he’s never a hero on the baseball field, Tim will certainly be remembered as a hero off of it!
