MLB News: Dmitri Young is Unrecognizable!

During his playing days he was known as “Da Meathook,” but now days it appears that Dmitri Young should be known as “Da Toothpick!” The former MLB slugger, recently showed up at a Nationals vs Reds game and was unrecognizable to most!


Young has reportedly lost over 100 pounds since his playing days. At his heaviest, Young tipped the scales at 295 pounds, which is among the 3rd highest in MLB history.

It’s unclear how Young lost all of the weight, but our hat goes off to him for making the amazing transformation.
