Cincinnati Reds relief pitcher Jonathan Broxton may have just been the largest athlete in the clubhouse. 300lbs and a height of 6’4, Broxton was a beast when he was still active. Maybe he had the same trainer as Bartolo Colon.
His fastest fastball on record had a speed of 102 mph. That was recorded in 2009, the same year as when he and his wife, Elizabeth, had their first child.
John Scott – 6’8″, 270 lbs
John Scott's size is only one of the things that helped him in his career as a professional hockey player. Those who are interested in knowing the other factors are welcome to read his autobiography, A Guy Like Me: Fighting to Make the Cut.
Scott is not all muscle. His brain is no less of an asset than his physique, and he has the mechanical engineering degree to prove it.
Adam Dunn – 6’8″, 285 lbs
Home run or strikeout are the only two end results Adam Dunn brought to the mound. At 6’8 and about 290 lbs, Dunn was intimidating with a bat in his hands.
Film fans would love to know that Dunn is a film fan himself and has even invested in the movie Dallas Buyers Club. Other than that, Dunn is a family man with four children.
Joe Finley – 6’8″, 260 lbs
As far as weight loss plans are concerned, Joe Finley didn’t care. He was all muscle and ferocity. At 6’8 and 250lbs, Finley was a hawk on the ice, and he wasn’t someone you wanted to see on the other end of a puck.
Most recently, Finley played for Helsinki's HIFK, but he had several teams to call home over the years, such as the South Carolina Stingrays, the Hamilton Bulldogs, and the Buffalo Sabers.
Nate Freiman – 6’8″, 250 lbs
Now, here’s a batter no one wanted to be up against. Nate Freiman stands at 6’8 and is 250lbs; while he hasn’t played in the MLB since 2014, you can find him in the Mexican Baseball League instead.
Freiman's wife, Amanda Blumenherst, is a professional golfer, which isn't surprising when you learn that the two met as Duke University's 2009 Athletes of the Year.
