Bregman's 6' listing is crazy, yes. Here he is with Marwin Gonzalez, who's listed 6'1. Click Here

I'd say with Altuve here he looks about 5'10. Click Here

He commented on Reddit that he's short for a major leaguer, so I don't think it's him doing the embellishing: Click Here


LOL 5-10 for Bregman is just as crazy as 6-0. Bregman is 5-8. Altuve looks 5-3 there which is possible.

Cora is 6-3. Bregman looks 5-7-5-8 compared to him.

His proportions lead me to believe he is 5’4, plus he never looks near 5’5 in pictures, honestly a weak 5’4.

He looks no taller than 5-3 with 6-2 George Springer. Click Here

I think Springer is more 6-1. I'd be shocked If he measured 5-4. He just looks tiny

Is Rosenthal really the height he says he is
Johnson said on 5/Apr/18
@viper he is taller than Rosenthal

See back to back picture

If he measured 5-3 it wouldn't surprise me. He can certainly look that at the plate. This listing is way too high.

He's around 5-3-5-4

Pedroia is not 5'9''- he's more like 5'6''-5'7''. If you see in this video: Click Here, you'll see that Pedroia helps out Mookie Betts (5'9'') at 0:21 and seems noticeably smaller in stature than him. Pedroia's a beast but its undoubtable that he's a tad short probs an inch or two above Altuve- his preference of a saggy, oversized Red Sox uniform doesn't help him and makes him look even smaller on the field.

5ft 6 in cleats

How tall is Pedroia? He definitely doesn't look 5'9". I don't think he's that much taller than Altuve.

Holds up quite well with Canelo. Rob, how many inches does Canelo have on Jose?
Editor Rob: depends how tall you have Canelo at, I think he could edge out Floyd, but isn't a 5ft 8 guy, so Jose can seem 5ft 5-5.5 zone.

How tall is Gaten Matarazzo from stranger things then Rob?
Editor Rob: could be 5ft 3ish

Where'/ Aaron Judge he is 6 foot 7. He had little over a foot on Altuve at games.

Definitely in agreement here that he's likely a bit shorter than 5'5", especially given that this is what he was originally listed at meaning even that was a "sports height."

Props to him for being a successful short baseball player.

Altuve's a solid 5'4 most likely. But yes most baseball players under 6'0 tend to be overlisted. 5'9ers like Lincecum and Ichiro are routinely listed at 5'11. Pedroia's most likely shorter than 5'9, although Jimmy Rollins' 5'7 listing is probably accurate. He doesn't seem shorter than that to me.

Alex Bregman is 5-8 going by LSU fans who met him in college.

He as at least 4 inches on 5-4 Altuve.

Baseball doesn't measure heights. They are insane with inflating. They can get away with it because height isn't as important in baseball

Rosenthal looks 5-3 at me.

Altuve is 5-4 MAX
Johnson said on 7/Nov/17
@Rob Can you add Ken Rosenthal?? If Altuve is 5'5 he is shorter than the 5'4.5 that he claims
Editor Rob: yeah he might be 5ft 4 at most and giving himself a half inch for luck.
Danimal said on 7/Nov/17
Standing "about" 5'5" means he is LESS THAN 5'5" GUARANTEED. He's 5'4" and change.
Free said on 6/Nov/17
Carlos Correa is 6-2. He's the same height as 6-2 max Alex Rodriguez.

Justin Verlander is 6-4 max. He was listed as that in college and I've met him.

Altuve is lucky to hit 5-4
Editor Rob: seems maybe over an inch taller than Caleb mcLaughlin from stranger things...I'd have put Caleb almost 5ft 4 himself with Big Steve Harvey

If the Baseball measurements are to be believed, which are probably shoe/sneaker or morning measurements, I still can't see him being as tall as 5'5. 5'4" is where he is imo
MD said on 6/Nov/17
Found this photo with his height listed at 5'5" before he "grew" as he became more well known. lol

Click Here

And just a general picture of him and his team showing his height in comparison to the average range of heights in the MLB:

Click Here

So, yeah, definitely 5'5" is tops.
Editor Rob: yeah you can see another photo of him with Watts, certainly makes 5ft 6 impossible, even 5ft 4.5 is believable.
