Tim Tebow's baseball tryout Tuesday

Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow is switching sports Tuesday.

Tuesday marks the workout, or audition of sorts, for Tebow as he holds a workout for Major League Baseball teams to take a look at his skills.

He's no stranger to the diamond, but it has been awhile since he played organized baseball in high school, The Associated Press reported.

More than 20 teams have confirmed that a representative will attend the workout in Los Angeles, ESPN reported.

At least 13 teams, including the Braves, Marlins, Red Sox and Rays, will be attending the workout, which is not open to the public, Sporting News reported.

Tebow has been training, splitting his time between Arizona and Los Angeles, for the past year. He had a tryout with the Dodgers before the current season. He didn't make the team but a scout was there, and the team was interested in the quarterback, ESPN reported.

"I spent time with Tim Tebow is the cages," former All-Star slugger Gary Sheffield told the AP. "He's a natural. Tim has it."

Tebow also worked out with former MLB pitcher David Aardsma, who posted to Twitter.

Tebow was an all-state baseball player in high school. He hit .494 his junior year for Nease High School. His team made the final four of the Florida state playoffs, ESPN reported.

On the gridiron, Tebow won the Heisman Trophy and two national championships with the University of Florida. He was a first-round draft pick for the Denver Broncos in 2010. He played his last season in 2012 for the New York Jets. He went to camp with the New England Patriots in 2013 and Philadelphia Eagles in 2015, but was cut before each season, ESPN reported.

Tebow is not the first pro to try to change sports. Michael Jordan played one season in the Chicago White Sox minor league system, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Bo Jackson also switched from football to baseball after being drafted by the Kansas City Royals in 1986. His last game was in 1994, according to his MLB stats page. He was an all-star in 1989 and participated in that year's Home Run Derby.
