How tall is MLB pitcher Marcus Stroman?
Although he is listed as five-foot-nine, Stroman wanted to make clear how tall he actually stands.
I'm 5 feet 8 inches. I'm not sure why I'm listed at 5 feet 9 inches but that's incorrect. Lol #HDMH

What's up with all the 5'9" college players?
I noticed that a lot of short college players are listed at 5'9", when they are actually much shorter. It seems that they grow a couple of inches when added to the roster.
