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.
Jonathan Broxton – 6’4″, 300 lbs
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.
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.
CC Sabathia – 6’7″, 290 lbs
As far as extraordinary left-handed pitchers go, CC Sabathia takes the cake. And then there’s the fact that he’s 6’7 and 290lbs, so yeah, he’s also one of the largest MLB athletes.
Sabathia's baseball career started as a high school student. He was courted by many colleges who wanted him to play for their teams. He was first drafted by the Cleveland Indians in 1998, and his latest team was the New York Yankees.
Kevin Garnett – 6'11 , 240 lbs
21 seasons in the NBA are not something people can usually take. Kevin Garnett, however, is anything but usual. Towering the height of 6’11″, Garnett's career is over two decades long, which shouldn't be taken lightly.
Garnett quit basketball in 2016. Since then, he has been serving as a consultant for the Los Angeles Clippers and performing on TV, among other things.
