It's not about the money or the fame ... Tim Tebow says he's simply pursuing a baseball career for the love of the game.
Tebow appeared on "Good Morning America" in NYC Monday morning -- even though he's got a game tonight in Arizona -- and told Robin Roberts he's having a blast playing minor league baseball.
"I’m so passionate about the game and pursuing it and playing every day is just so much fun," Tebow said ... "It’s amazing when you do something for the love of it."
Tebow also opens up about how he bounced back after getting pushed out of the NFL -- "I’ve been told by a lot of different teams that I’m not good enough so how do you handle that?"
"For me, it’s to be able to have a foundation of something bigger than yourself, understand what God says about you, that you are important, that you have a life of significance and you have a life of meaning."
