Former Reds slugger Dmitri Young was on hand Friday night at Great American Ball Park to watch two of his former teams do battle on the diamond. And it would be no stretch to say that the 40-year-old has never looked better.

Check out this side-by-side photo posted by MLB Cut 4 showing the amazing weight transformation Young has made since the end of his playing days. According to Baseball Reference, Young tipped the scales at 300 pounds during his playing career. He's obviously much thinner in retirement.

Note the irony of "Da Meat Hook" sporting a bacon t-shirt on Friday while showing off his slimmer self.

Young spent four of his 13 MLB seasons in Cincinnati compiling a .304/.353/.488 line with 67 home runs and 296 RBI during that stretch.
