What MLB player looks most like you? Pick any player from the history of baseball at any age. Drawing a blank?
Here’s how you can find your baseball player twin!
1. Your photo
Find an photo of yourself wearing your favorite team’s clothing. Preferably this photo will be taken at the ballpark. For this example, here’s a photo of me at Wrigley Field wearing a Cubs hat and tshirt.
2. Do a reverse Google Image search.
3. Limit the results
When the search results appear, limit them down by your favorite team. Type in your favorite team’s name and hit enter.
4. Enjoy the results
Here are the top results of Cubs players who look most like my photo:
Who does Google say are the top three Cubs players that look most like my photo?
Ok, so the first result I wasn’t too flattered. But at least this guy is 34 years old in the photo. A good seven years younger than me. Ed Bailey played only one year for the Cubs–in 1965. The lefty catcher split time with the righty catcher Chris Krug. Next year Bailey would be replaced with Cubs legend, Randy Hundley.
The next player to look most like my photo is Bruce Sutter. Whoat?! Bruce Sutter? Isn’t that the guy with the beard? Yup, but when Bruce was 25 years old with the Cubs, he had no beard. This photo is from 1978, his third year with the Cubs, and second year as an All-Star.
Hey, I’ll take this one! Ron Santo at 23 years old. In 1963 Ron Santo had his first All-Star season. This is his 1964 Topps Giant card.
The results aren’t entirely accurate, but it’s certainly fun. Use a photo of yourself to find your baseball player twin!
