Tebow learns from Jacksonville neighbor Daniel Murphy

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) After struggling in the Arizona Fall League last year, New York Mets prospect Tim Tebow turned his attention to his hometown of Jacksonville for some help and inspiration.

Washington second baseman Daniel Murphy, a former Met, also lives in the north Florida city.

"We became friends and went up to a place by our houses and trained a lot. He's as much as an addict for sports as I am," Tebow said Monday before hitting nine batting practice home runs during his first spring training workout. "Even Thanksgiving morning, we were out there hitting before he had to go back to his wife and his family. He was begging for a couple of hours (of sports). That's how addicted he is, but it's also how helpful he was to me."
