Ex-NBA star McGrady makes baseball debut for Texas team

This time last year, Tracy McGrady was preparing for the NBA playoffs with the San Antonio Spurs.

On Wednesday, the seven-time NBA All-Star made his baseball debut with the Sugar Land Skeeters, a member of the Atlantic (Independent) League of Professional Baseball, in a scrimmage against Alvin Community College.

McGrady started and threw 15 pitches in one inning, allowing one run on three hits in the Skeeters’ 10-1 win.

After retiring from basketball in August, McGrady announced in February he wanted to pursue his dream of playing baseball.
