Dustin Pedroia's True Height Revealed

Amanda BrunoCorrespondent IJuly 27, 2009

There has been a lot of speculation about Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia's height.

Pedroia is officially listed by Major League Baseball as 5'9", 180 pounds.
When he stands next to David Ortiz (6'4", 280 lbs) he looks more like a little guy.
Well check out the supplied article photo.
Peter Schiller of Baseball Reflections was able to meet the 2008 American League Most Valuable Player last Saturday at the Salem 5 in North Andover and got his picture taken along with five of his six kids.
Schiller informed me that he stands at 5'5" and three-quarters of an inch. As you can see from the photo, Pedroia is not much taller.
It looks like he can't be taller than 5'7", but looks as if he's only 5'6", 5'6-1/2".
As for weight, well, we'll never exactly know about that one.
Thanks to Peter for supplying the photo.
