When you think of professional athletes, you think of elite skill and plenty of hours spent in the gym.
We hear plenty of reports about off-season training and how hard professional athletes work to keep their bodies in top shape.
Every once in a while, we come across a dominant athlete that doesn’t exactly fit that mold.
They might be a little overweight, but they still get the job done as good as anyone.
So, 93-7 The Fan’s Joe Starkey and Chris Mueller sat down and came up with some of the best, shall we say “overweight” athletes of all-time.
No. 6 – Jerome Bettis – “My local pick. There’s no questioning his size,” Starkey said.
No. 5 – George Foreman – “By the end of his career, he looked like he weighed at least 500 pounds. His head probably weighed 250,” Starkey said.
No. 4 – Tony Gwynn – “Maybe the greatest pure hitter of this generation,” Mueller said.
No. 3 – John Daly – “I love him for the fact that he was totally unapologetic about it all. Guzzling Diet Coke, Peanut M&M’s and smoking cigarettes,” Starkey said.
No. 2 – William “The Refrigerator” Perry – “He scored touchdowns and ran the ball too!” Mueller said.
No. 1 – Babe Ruth – “How can it be anyone other than Babe Ruth?” Mueller said.
