Wellesley’s Nate Freiman is one very, very tall major league baseball player

It’s hard to get past the first sentence of most stories about Nate Freiman, the former Wellesley High school baseball player now with the Oakland Athletics, without a reference to his 6-foot-8-inch frame.

But words can’t do justice to what is a more effective image, as seen in these recent GIFs. (Freiman, by the way, hit his second homer of the season on Sunday.)
