The Charleston RiverDogs really love messing with Tim Tebow.
The Class-A affiliate of the Yankees took on Tebow and his Columbia Fireflies over the weekend and didn’t appear to be hospitable hosts.
The RiverDogs blasted the former Heisman Trophy winner during his visit to “The Joe” nearly every chance they got, and the Mets minor leaguer responded by going 2-for-12.
They started by playing the infamous clip of Tebow crying after Florida’s loss to Alabama in the 2009 SEC Championship Game.
The RiverDogs’ mascot did his part in the Tebow trolling by wearing eye black with the former Gator QB’s motivational “John 3:16” written on it.

Charlie T was later seen “Tebowing” on the field.

Every time a Columbia hitter came to the plate, the scoreboard reminded fans that not every player on the roster is Tim Tebow.
We're not sure who IS batting, but we're relatively sure it's not @TimTebow. @MiLBPromos pic.twitter.com/EJIk2XfjdZ

If the main objective was to get inside their opponent’s heads, you could argue it worked, at least somewhat. Charleston took two out of three games from Tebow and the Fireflies.
