25 Tallest Players in MLB History

Dave Kingman – 6’6
He was nicknamed King Kong and Sky King for good reason; because he is so tall. He played third base, first base, designated hitter, and outfield for various teams over the course of 16 seasons. He was born in 1948, and he managed to maintain some of the greatest, longest, and best home runs in the league while also maintaining the worst strike out record. He was hit or miss, literally and figuratively on the field. However, he was tall.
