You know Bartolo Colon. The renowned New York Mets pitcher is big, he's burly and he's every bit of his 'Big Sexy' nickname.

Before his days with the Mets, Colon was signed by the Cleveland Indians as a free agent at 20 years old and made his MLB debut in the 1997 season –- the last year the Indians competed in a World Series.
