Former NBA star Tracy McGrady made his pro baseball debut with the Sugar Land Skeeters on Saturday, and while it may have not been the most impressive start, it's impressive enough that he was able to transition to a second sport.

McGrady's start was a short one, lasting just 1.2 innings while throwing 35 pitches. In those 1.2 innings, McGrady gave up two hits, two walks and two earned runs while not striking out a single batter, according to Mark Berman from Fox 26.

One pitch got away from McGrady and allowed the runners to advance.

Hopefully we'll see more of McGrady as the season goes on, but this wasn't the most positive start for the former NBA player.
