Aaron Judge stands next to smaller people

Yankees prospect Aaron Judge is very large, and he makes adjacent people look small.

It is NBA draft season, and the internet has been a abuzz with talk of draft prospects. One article of note was regarding Jahlil Okafor, in which he held seemingly large objects to show how small they appear in his hands. The Yankees don't have a Jahlil Okafor, but they do have an Aaron Judge.

Aaron Judge is very large. At six feet and seven inches tall and 230 pounds, there really aren't any physical comparisons other than Giancarlo Stanton, baseball wise. So to illustrate how big Aaron Judge is, much in the vein of the post about Okafor, here is Aaron Judge with people, in situations both real and imaginary.

Here is a picture of the Triple-A team. Can you spot Aaron Judge? Of course you can, he's large. He's like that one kid who hit his growth spurt first, except with actual, professional baseball players.

This is Aaron Judge next to Reggie Jackson, and Judge is literally looking down on him. I don't think I've looked up at someone to talk to them since I was eight years old, and I'm short.

This is Aaron Judge next to an actual major league baseball player, Ryan Howard. Howard is six feet and four inches tall, but Judge, for whatever reason, makes Howard looks about six feet tall. Judge's hand is about twice the size of Howard's; Howard's hand with an attached glove is only slighter larger.

This is Aaron Judge next to Babe Ruth. I wasn't kidding when I said imaginary. I think the comparison is fair given the Ryan Howard picture (Ruth is two inches shorter than Howard). Babe Ruth is the greatest Yankee of all time, and Judge makes him appear... paltry, to say the least.

This is Aaron Judge next to smaller people, and I hope for many more years of photos of this man next to smaller people and things.
