Tracy McGrady looking to pitch for Independent League baseball team

Retired NBA superstar Tracy McGrady may be looking to rejoin professional athletics as a pitcher for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the Indepenedent League.

The news first came to light when ESPN’s Jeff Van Gundy mentioned during a game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Brooklyn Nets that McGrady was working out with the Skeeters and that his pitches were clocked at 91 MPH.

The report has since been confirmed by Randy McIlvoy of Houston’s KPRC-TV, who added that McGrady has trainined with Roger Clemens, who pitched for the Skeeters two seasons ago, and whose son Kody is currently the team’s catcher.
