Tim Tebow did not play Sunday in the Rumble Ponies game due to a stiff back, but manager Luis Rojas seemed pretty confident it won't keep him out of the All-Star Game Wednesday night.
"He was asking me, 'You think I'm going to play the whole game?'" said Rumble Ponies manager Luis Rojas. "I don't know. Jay Bell is the manager for his squad, so we'll be looking forward to how the guys come into the game, who is going to start."
