12. Jon Rauch – Baseball
For whatever reason, when it comes to the various positions in baseball, the majority of pitchers always seem to tower above the rest.
Amongst the many tall pitchers stands Jon Rauch whose 6’11” frame makes it seem like his head should have one of those blinking red skyscraper lights when he’s on the mound for a night game.
Compare the NBA’s gargantuan Shaquille O’Neal to Rauch.
Shaq (who’s two inches taller than Rauch) had a free throw shot that looked like he picked up a ball for the first time every time. Rauch, the tallest MLB player ever, had a four-seam fastball, slider, curveball, changeup and cutter in his arsenal.
