MLB's Biggest Teams

Authors: Edgar Zamora

Abstract: As the 2021 MLB season was winding down and the New York Yankees were fighting for a Wild Card spot, I frequently heard the commentators refer to how tall the Yankees were. Aaron Judge (6'7"), Giancarlo Stanton (6'6"), and Luke Voit (6'3") are among the taller Yankee players, which got me thinking how tall the Yankees are as a team is compared to other MLB teams. Using physical characteristics from ESPN MLB rosters, I compare the average height, age, and weight among MLB teams.
