Tracy Mcgrady BaseballTracy McGrady recently retired from the NBA after a stellar 15 year career in which he was named a 7-time NBA All-Star, led the league in scoring twice, earned All-NBA First Team twice, All-NBA Second Team three times, and All-NBA Third Team twice. So, what is a former NBA star to do after retirement? Yep, you said it, try to earn a professional baseball contract.

Last week the 6-foot-8 McGrady, who is still young at only 34 years of age, walked on the diamond at the Sugar Land Skeeters spring training camp to try to earn a pro contract as a pitcher in the independent Atlantic League. Many people may be wondering the motivation behind the move is, but to McGrady it is simply to fulfill a “lifelong dream”.

Baseball was always his first love. From the time he started playing baseball at 5 years of age he loved everything about the game, from hitting to fielding and pitching. But when he transferred to Mount Zion Christian Academy in high school, who does not have a baseball program, basketball and football took precedence over baseball. However, after a successful NBA career his love for playing the game has resurfaced and he enters spring training confident in his abilities as a ball player.

Scouts that have seen him pitch are saying that he has plenty of potential on the mound, and after some work on mechanics he may develop the command and velocity he will need to land a professional contract. So get excited fans, Tracy McGrady may be on his way to a diamond near you.
