There’s a reason why the nickname “The Big Unit” stuck with Randy Johnson. Towering at 6 feet 10 inches, Johnson’s ability to strikeout players and use intimidation tactics to keep them away from the plate was astonishing. His hard slider was able to send 10.67 batters per nine innings back to the bullpen. Johnson is also second in the number of batters hit. Looking back at old tapes you can see the fear in their eyes as they faced the Big Unit.
