Two-time NBA scoring champion Tracy McGrady will make his pro baseball debut on Saturday, when he'll be the starting pitcher for the Sugar Land Skeeters in an Atlantic League game against the Somerset Patriots.

The 34-year-old will be on a limited pitch count, according to manager and former MLB All-Star Gary Gaetti. The 6-foot-8 McGrady last pitched in an exhibition game in April, allowing three hits in one inning against Alvin Community College.
