    Just for the record, he's even bigger than Howard, or Frank Thomas, or Dave Winfield, or any other position player who has ever played. He is listed at 6'7", 282, and evidently no other position player has ever been that big.

    Nate Freiman shares this height. With respect to the weight column, only five position players all-time have been heavier than 282: Calvin Pickering at 283, Adam Dunn at 285, Kennys Vargas at 290, Dimitri Young at 295, and all-time leader Walter Young at 320.

    That said, it's a B-Ref specific search, to find players bigger than 79 inches -and- 282 pounds, which is why Jon put that qualification in his post. Closest I found to these measurements was OF Steven Moya, who is listed at at 6'7", 260 pounds, and Detroit's 10th best prospect by SB Nation's John Sickles, of MinorLeagueBall, going into the season. Moya interestingly has a line in his write-up you'd think was Judge's if you didn't know better, at the time: "skills haven’t changed a bit, still has enormous power with serious contact problems[.]"

    Right, it's the height/weight combo. I read this somewhere recently and looked for the citation when posting, but couldn't find it, sorry.

    BRef lists Clark at 205 but that seems impossibly low.
