The Charleston RiverDogs didn’t go easy on Tim Tebow this weekend.

During their Friday night game against Tebow’s Columbia Fireflies, the RiverDogs showed every player in the Fireflies lineup who wasn’t Tebow as “NOT TIM TEBOW” with an image of him crying in the background on the stadium scoreboard.

Tebow’s crying image was of him nearing the end of Florida’s loss to Alabama in the 2009 SEC championship game.

The RiverDogs also mocked Tebow on Twitter for his general attempt of becoming a professional baseball player.

Then, during Saturday night’s game, Tebow sent his bat flying into the second level of the stands after losing control of it following a swing in an at-bat, and the Fireflies made sure to track it down.

As they put it on Twitter, the bat, which had Tebow’s name on it, was donated by a “fan” and that they “needed some fire wood.”

Tebow then struck out in that same at-bat.

The RiverDogs’ mascot, Charlie T. RiverDog, also participated in “Tebowing” and wore eye black with “John 3:16” on it like Tebow would when he was a football player.
