Former scoring wizard Tracy McGrady was last seen in the NBA with the San Antonio Spurs, riding the bench in their 2013 Finals loss to the Miami Heat. T-Mac decided to exchange his sneakers for spikes in 2014, beginning an independent league baseball career with the Sugarland Skeeters. “Inside Stuff” had this short feature on McGrady’s quest to the mound a few months ago.
Unfortunately, like his basketball career, McGrady’s baseball career has ended quite abruptly. CBS reports that McGrady is calling it quits after four appearances, a 6.75 ERA and an abnormally high walk rate. Sabermetrics talk aside, T-Mac is sure to be missed on baseball diamonds and basketball courts everywhere.
