The Cultural Encyclopedia of Baseball (1997) by Jonathan Fraser Light has an entire section dedicated to Fat and Weight (pg 250); here are some entries:

"A waist is a terrible thing to mind." - Terry 'Fat Tub of Goo' Forster (to / on David Letterman)

"I only eat two meals a day, I just like snacks." - Willie Horton (responding to a question about his weight gain in Spring Training)

"Mr. President (Dwight Eisenhower), I was on a diet for 25 years. Now that I'm makin' some money, I'm makin' sure that I eat enough to make up for the lean years." - Dizzy Dean (while golfing with the President & answering why he weighed nearly 300 pounds.)

"Watching Fernando Valenzuela force himself into a Los Angeles Dodgers uniform is something like seeing Kate Smith struggling to fit into a pair of Brook Sheilds' designer jeans." - Sports H.G. Reza

The heaviest player in Major League history was Jumbo Brown who weighed two-hundred ninety-five (295) pounds and played from 1925 through 1941.

I think that Cecil Fielder was likely well over 300 at the time he retired.

Love Bill James take on Fielder. "A fat guy that hit a few home runs for a while. Fielder acknowledges a weight of 261,"leaving unanswered the question of what he might weight if he put his other foot on the scale."

Mo Vaughn had to be pushing 300. The uniform didn't fit on him.
