Top 20 Fattest MLB Players of All-time

Just the other day, I celebrated my one year anniversary with TheSportster and realized that it all began when I made an article about massive NFL players that lost a ton of weight after their careers ended. Now, we’re going with the opposite end of the spectrum and looking at baseball players that were massive during their playing days.

In football, you naturally need to have some fat guys or else offensive and defensive lines would not generate much of an entertaining game. As for baseball, it seems that it’s the only other sport (unless you want to count pro wrestling) where a larger guy can have a long career. Hell, even the player that many consider to be the best of all time in baseball was a fat guy.

Here, we celebrate the girthy history of America’s pastime by going back and taking a look at the fattest players to ever grace the diamond. Here you have them, the 20 fattest MLB players of all-time.

Our list ends with the late Walter Young, who spent just 14 games in the MLB. Young was using his massive frame to bomb home runs in the minor leagues before being called up in late 2005 with the Orioles, hitting one homer in his 33 career at bats. Young was shifted to the Astros the next year, but never played in the Major Leagues again, opting to go to the independent leagues. Young was just 35 years old when he passed away from a heart attack in late 2015, and the last update that anyone had on him was that he was pursuing a degree from the University of Phoenix.
