The funny thing about it is that this is the "fat" pitcher we're all talking about:

Babe didn't start packing on the pounds until his hitting days.

Babe was a big base stealer in his yonger days too IIRC. He didn't get fat until he started hitting homeruns and drinking every night.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

He's 6 foot 10, he's allowed to weigh a lot. He's actually fairly skinny.
