Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow, now trying his hand at a baseball career, was left comforting a fan who was having a seizure while playing his first game in the Arizona Fall League.

The Phoenix Fire Department said a man in his 40s was having a seizure on Tuesday at Camelback Ranch, the spring training home to two major league teams.

Tebow, recently signed by the New York Mets to a minor league contract, went 0 for 3 and also ran into an outfield wall chasing a flyball for the Scottsdale Scorpions.

Azcentral reported Tebow was signing autographs after the game when a man fell ill in the stands. Pictures showed Tebow put his hand on the fan's leg, and azcentral said the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner at Florida prayed and talked to the man about Georgia football.

The Phoenix Fire Department said the man was transported to an emergency room. No more details were provided on his condition.
