Why does baseball allow players to get fat?

Baseball is strange..the only sport where the playing fields are not standard...a few feet more here,shorter fence there and even an arcane brick wall.  Then,you have multimillionaire players show up all over  baseball with fat guts. "Country breakfast" might beat out a ground ball if he ate wheat bread and granola in milk instead of 'cakes,bacon,eggs and hash.
You would think teams would tell players in the offseason- lose that weight,or even,add some muscle.

Amazing how baseball sticks to beer league thinking.


Or,to put it another way? I'm in baseball condition. Scary huh?
