HOUSTON (AP) - Retired seven-time NBA All-Star Tracy McGrady plans to try pitching for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League.
A statement from the team says that it is a ''lifelong dream'' of McGrady's to play baseball. It also says that the 6-foot-8 McGrady has ''demonstrated skill, determination and diligence during his training program.'' The team says it looks forward to monitoring his progress in a new sport.
The 34-year-old McGrady played for several NBA teams, including the Houston Rockets and Orlando Magic. He last played in the 2011-12 season.
The Skeeters last made national headlines when Roger Clemens pitched two games for them in 2012 at age 50.
