When we think of MLB players, we normally associate them with being tall.
That's because the 6’0” to 6’2” height range has dominated the majors since 1876 in regard to the number of players.
But there has also been a formidable collection of players who aren’t exactly as close to the clouds, as their fellow elevated players.
In fact, many of the more famous names we either know now, or know of from the past, were well under six feet tall.
Why don’t we take a look at who is who in pool of players under six feet.
For the record, the smallest player ever to play the game was Eddie Gaedel who played for the St. Louis Browns in 1951 and was just 3’ 7” and weighed just 65 pounds. In his only time at bat as a major league player he pinched hit and walked.
