Tracy McGrady Is Trying To Become A Pitcher

Former New York Yankees pitcher Roger Clemens is trying to help former New York Knicks star Tracy McGrady become a pitcher. Can McGrady be the next Michael Jordan? Jordan retired from the NBA, like McGrady did last season, to try out baseball only to come back to basketball and win a ring or two or four.

McGrady has been clocked on the radar gun in the 83-85 MPH range but is struggling with his command a little. McGrady is said to have the body and the mechanics to repeat his delivery though and that is sometimes half the battle, so good for Tracy. Good for McGrady I hope he gets the shot to live out his childhood dream, even if it is in the Independent League and not the Major Leagues.

The Sugar Land Skeeters of the Atlantic League have shown interest in the former NBA star and even released a press release for McGrady:

"Tracy McGrady is one of the most elite athletes of this era and we appreciate his interest in pursuing a life-long dream with the Sugar Land Skeeters and the Atlantic League. While the Atlantic League is considered the highest level of baseball outside of Major League Baseball, McGrady has demonstrated skill, determination and diligence during his training program at Constellation Field. We look forward to monitoring his progress."
