Spring Training Open Thread: Braves at Pirates

New, 64 comments

I really wish today's game was televised. Just as we got a chance to see our wunderkind Tommy Hanson throw yesterday, another exciting addition to our staff toes the rubber today -- Kenshin Kawakami. But back to Hanson. I didn't realize until I saw him on the mound that he was that TALL. He's huge on the mound, with super-long legs. He's listed at 6-6 and he's every bit of that, if not more. I would venture a guess that he's the tallest pitcher the Braves have had in a long time (the only other one I can remember is Marvin Freeman, who was 6-7). Has there been anyone taller since then?
