Tracy Mcgrady PitchingIn February we reported that former NBA All-Star Tracy McGrady would be pursuing a baseball career as a pitcher with the Sugar Land Skeeters in the independent Atlantic League. When he announced his intentions to play baseball he said it was simply to fulfill a “lifelong dream.” Well, he has finally made that dream a reality.

On Wednesday, April 16, McGrady made his professional pitching debut in a scrimmage against junior college powerhouse Alvin Community College. With an overall record of 33-11 and a conference record of 23-8, Alvin CC was no slouch in terms of opponents, and McGrady made an impressive debut. Allowing three hits and just one run in one inning of work, he threw nine of his 15 pitches for strikes and did a great job keeping hitters off balance.

The Sugar Land Skeeters are currently in their spring training phase, and McGrady will have to continue to impress to make the regular season squad. However, if he continues to improve he will keep himself in the running for one of the competitive roster spots. The first cut for the Skeeters is set for April 24, in which the team will cut down from 34 to 27 players.

With a legendary 15 year NBA career behind him, McGrady has a professional resume on his side that includes 7 NBA All-Star selections, two NBA scoring titles, and six All-NBA selections. When it comes to scouting baseball players it is all about athleticism and potential, and McGrady has an upside that not many other players have. With size and explosiveness that cannot be taught, McGrady’s baseball future projects to be bright.
