Editorial Note: The latest information graphic from the talented Craig Robinson of Flip Flop Fly Ball shows us the average height of every team in Major League Baseball. Also of interest, to me at least, is that Jose Altuve of the Houston Astros and Tim Collins of the Kansas City Royals are slightly easier to identify than Chris Young and Jon Rauch of the New York Mets. Also, according to Drew Fairservice, there is absolutely no chance that Bryce Harper is actually 6’3″. [D.P.].

  1. I love me some Jose Altuve.

    Jon Rauch, notsomuch.

  2. I’ve wondered about this kinda stuff. Interesting.

    But am I reading this wrong? Or are the avg height lines (blue, orange and purple) mislabeled? nbd

  3. Doug Fister of the Detroit Tigers is 6’8. But I don’t see him on there!

  4. What kind of correlation is there between average height and winning percentage? Just at a glance I see a lot of teams that are doing well at the tall end and a lot of teams that are doing poorly at the short end.

  5. My favorite part is scrolling the page up and down really fast.
