Tallest Player In Baseball


I came across this interesting player when checking in on my hometown Snappers. The dude is a 7'1" tall relief pitcher. Got me thinking of who is the tallest in baseball. This guy has to be up there.

Jon Rauch is the tallest MLB player ever (6'11").

 

The St. Paul Saints boasted the tallest professional baseball player ever (7'3"), but it was just a publicity stunt where he had just 1 AB I think.

 

Loek van Mil of the Snappers (which you linked to above) is currently the tallest professional baseball player.

Yes 7-3 Dave Rasmussen went up to bat for the Saints, but it was an exhibition game and he can only loosely be described as a baseball player, as he just somewhat waved at three straight pitches, with no real chance to hit the ball. Publicity stunt would probably be accurate, somewhat like giving a 60-year-old actor an at bat...
