Dee Gordon had to stand on a crate to be as tall as Aaron Judge

Since he debuted in 2016, Aaron Judge has been making MLB players look tiny by comparison. As professional athletes, Major Leaguers are some of the best and most impressive athletes in the world, but Judge's six-foot-seven frame makes them look like ordinary people every time he steps on the field. 
On Tuesday, Mariners second baseman Dee Gordon was the latest in a long line of athletes unable to match up with Judge's size. So, he grabbed a crate to get on the slugger's level:

At 5-foot-11, Gordon is actually taller than the average American male, but next to Judge you'd think he was one of the shortest people out there. At least Gordon can take some solace in the fact that even MVPs have suffered the same fate.
