As we reported earlier, Tracy McGrady made his regular season debut for the Sugar Land Skeeters today and according to Sports Illustrated, it was exactly a dream start to his post-basketball career.
McGrady, who played baseball until his senior year in high school after which he immediately began a 16-year NBA career, took the mound Saturday for the Sugar Land Skeeters, an independent-league team located in a Houston suburb.
The 34-year-old’s pitching line courtesy of Mike Ashmore: 1 2/3 innings, 35 pitches (18 strikes/17 balls), 2 earned runs, 2 walks and he allowed a home run by Somerset Patriots shortstop Edwin Maysonet.
I just hope McGrady has a better baseball career than Michael Jordan.
