Fat Derek Jeter has been blowing up today so a BC fan suggested we put together an all-time fat baseball team. Challenge Accepted. We went through and dug up some of the fattest slobs who have ever donned an MLB uniform. What we noticed was that the fatty’s tend to be pitchers, first basemen and designated hitters and that it was shockingly tough to find heffers at the catcher position.
