This past season, the basketball and football worlds became the beacon of superstardom for two players. Tim Tebow became an overnight sensation for the Denver Broncos, and Jeremy Lin became the same for the New York Knicks.
Whether you believe both are the real deal or overrated, we cannot deny the impact they've had on sports, as their popularity has went far beyond simple fandom. With those two sports having that type of player, baseball seems to be next in line.
What player could make their mark as the next Tebow or Lin? Here are 25 possibilities. I limited it to first-year players who did not earn Rookie of the Year votes or those who have not played much, so that it would show players who are not in the limelight yet but could be there out of nowhere.
While 24 players are unranked, I did find a clear top choice to become the next Lin or Tebow, which will be at the end of the slideshow.
