The Land of Giants: The Largest Athletes in Sports History
5. Loek van Mil
Another tall Dutchman is professional baseball player Loek van Mil, a valuable pitcher who played on the Dutch national team, and on MLB teams before moving to Australia to play for the Adelaide Bite.
He stands at 7 feet tall and was previously a catcher before he became too tall for the position. He moved to first base, but a coach thought that his height might be an advantage on the pitcher’s mound instead. Van Mil is currently the tallest player in professional baseball.
