WATCH: While on deck, Tim Tebow greets boy with autism then clubs three-run homer

Mets farmhand Tim Tebow continues to be one of the nicest baseball players human beings around. While on deck recently, he gave a five to a young fan with autism... and then hit a three-run bomb. The moving video: 

Tim Tebow stepped out of the On-Deck Circle to greet an Autistic Fan. Then he stepped up to the plate and hit a 3 run bomb. This is amazing ⚾️💙

Hearing the mother's account is pretty awesome, too, including when she called the homer. 

Way to go, Mr. Tebow. We need more feel-good moments like this! 

Tebow, for those curious, is hitting .248/.314/.411 with six doubles, a triple and five homers in 41 games since his promotion to Class A-Advanced. A September call-up -- especially since the Mets aren't in contention -- isn't out of the question.
