Tracy McGrady is back, albeit in a different sport. Unless you've been living in a cave for the last few weeks, you'll know that T-Mac is attempting to complete his childhood dream of becoming a professional baseball pitcher.
Well until now we really had no idea if he was up to the challenge or not.
Well thanks to Fansided.com, we have video footage of McGrady warming the hands of a catcher in practice.
Apparently the big man isn't doing too badly.
“He’s so tall and his arms are so long. His downward slope, you’re not going to see that too often,” said Barrett Barnes, a minor league outfielder in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization, in an interview with FOX 26 Sports . . .
”Say his velo is 87, but with his arms and his body, it feels like it’s 90-91 (MPH) . . . His velo might by lower, but it feels like it gets on you way faster,” Barnes added.
As long as McGrady can pitch better than he does here, he may be alright.
