Baseball pitcher Bartolo Colon has reportedly filed a trademark for the term 'Big Sexy'.

The Mets pitcher, listed as 5-foot-11 and 129 kgs (which seems a bit light), is a cult figure in baseball.

ESPN's Darren Rovell has reported that Colon will file for the trademark with the purpose to sell merchandise including the 'Big Sexy' phrase.

Colon recently became the oldest player to hit his first home run in Major League Baseball.
