@Rampage: I remember seeing A-Rod with Eli Manning and it looked 3”. Rising brought it up once and I saw some pic. Maybe slightly less but I doubt Eli is 6’4.75” afternoon height. Maybe 6’4.5 but wouldn’t surprise me if 6’4 3/8”. A-Rod could be something like 6’1.5 or .75”. Jeter looks more 6’2 imho with Jordan but other times 6’2.25 fits

i think 6'2 for jeter and 6'1 for rodriguez seems about right.

Rob, is 6ft2½ possible for Jeter?


I think if A-Rod is 6ft2 it could be argued...
RP said on 15/Dec/20
@ Canson, yep...that makes sense. AM & PM measurements.
Canson said on 15/Dec/20
@Mickie: not to mention Marino measured 6’3.25 the year after he measured 6’3 5/8”.
Mickie said on 14/Dec/20
I'd imagine Dan Marino is similar to my height, roughly 6'4" immediately out of bed and closer to 6'3.25" at night. You could easily measure me at 6'3 5/8" at a sports combine, too.
Canson said on 13/Dec/20
@RP: maybe footwear but I’d guess there’s 3cm between them. Here’s Marino with Peyton Manning

@RP: yea I’ve met Marino. Rob had him listed correctly. It was an inch. I believe the 6’3.25 and 6’3 5/8 morning

@ Canson
It was a Yankees locker room video from several years ago, you can only see them from the knees up. And Jeter was still dressing into full uniform. So, there was a good chance he didn’t have his shoes on yet? But, that being said...Dan was noticeably taller. And we know for a fact that during his Spring Semester Junior year @ Pittsburg (spring practice for NFL Scouts) March 1982 at the age of 20....Dan Marino was officially measured barefoot @ 6’3.625” or 6’3-5/8” ...so, they could still put Jeter at exactly 6’2”. Even if he did have his shoes on & they were in equal footwear??

@Rampage: Jeter looked 6’2 while I’d give A-Rod 6’1.5”
Canson said on 11/Dec/20
@RP: but that would make him a weak 6’2. He looks a legit 6’2” guy. While I feel 6’2 over 6’2.25, I wouldn’t go below that mark. He ranks right up there with Brett Favre or Terry Crews as a very legit 6’2”
RP said on 11/Dec/20
Was 1.5” to 1.75” inches shorter than Dan Marino.
Mickie said on 10/Dec/20
6'2" flat is what I actually have him at, 6'2.25"i about the most I can imagine.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Dec/20
Jeter and A-Rod both look around 6ft2 but I think it’s likelier A-Rod may fall a bit under it at worst while Jeter is a bit over. There’s not much between them overall
Canson said on 10/Dec/20
@Viper: yea 6’2 not 6’2.25. I don’t see him being a full 6’3 out of bed. I see 6’2.75 and 6’2 flat
MrTBlack said on 10/Dec/20
Does anyone have his draft measurements and are they barefoot or in cleats?
MD said on 10/Dec/20
Yeah, it's not a huge difference, but Jeter is pretty consistently taller than A-Rod. They can look pretty close because the shoulder heights are very close from what I've seen. Jeter has a longer neck.
viper said on 9/Dec/20
A-rod needs to be downgraded to 6-1.5

Jeter is a bit taller than him
viper said on 9/Dec/20
Great add and yep, he's 6-2

I remember him being listed as high as 6’4” when he first started. I didn’t even believe the later 6’3 claim when I saw him standing with other 6’3 teammates who looked taller.

Solid 6’2 from me.
Canson said on 9/Dec/20
He’s a solid 6’2. Not 6’2.25”
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Dec/20
6ft3 isn’t that bad of a claim...I’m sure he gets it first thing. Definitely more entitled to claim it than A-Rod

@ Nik - That's nice to know! 😁

That's a nice name - it means 'to jump' and takes me back to the days when Cordercy the Tom Cat used to bring frogs and toads into the house! 🐸

They'd bounce and bounce and squeak and squeak and then Jim and I knew it was time to get up and save the poor little creatures! So we did! 😀👍

Derek gets a mammoth 6ft2.25.
Mickie said on 8/Dec/20
No more than this height imo, 6'2.25".

Finally! I thought strong 6'2" too. He was similar to Favre and taller than A-Rod
