You obviously don't need to be tall to be an all-star. You can be 6-foot-6 like pitcher Chris Sale (L), 6-foot-2 like outfielder Mike Trout (C) or 5-foot-5 like second baseman Jose Altuve (R). Most societies have grown taller over the past century, but the rate in places with poor health and access to food has declined or plateaued.
