My memory of mark is just how much he loved his players. Never have I seen more loyalty. Winning was fun to mark , but being there for his players was his main objective when he took to the dugout. It was an honor to be at his side and he will be forever missed but never forgotten. Thank you for investing you smile and good attitude to our mariner family. Win or lose, we took that with us
You are “Top Shelf”

Mark and I go back many years working together with the Mariner organization and baseball at Kyte Monroe. Whether it was helping out with tournaments, scheduling games or practices, or just sitting around talking baseball, the thing that made Mark different than most coaches was he always took the time to ask me if I needed anything, instead of the other way around. That's a very rare and special quality. Mark was a great guy and baseball in St. Clair Shores will not be the same without him. He will not be forgotten.

I will always remember the day that Tyler came to be a substitute player for Mark. Because that day I think I heard the story how Mark told Tyler, "to quit whatever team he is on and join his team", a million times.
He was so proud that someone believed that he was good enough to play with "the middle school kids". That day did more for his self confidence then years of baseball training. That day gave Tyer the courage to bunt, and boy did he bunt, I think every at-bat he went for the bunt.
Mark did more for these kids self confidence than he'll ever know, and for that I'm sure he will be remembered forever.

Coach, Thank you for believing in Matthew and giving him the opportunity to be apart of your team. When you sat down with Matthew after the game and asked him “ Do you wanna play baseball”. Matthew said yes and you said “Welcome to the family” . Matthew turned to me with tears of joy and said Dad, I made the team. This was such a special moment for Matt and, I was in tears. Just knowing you made Matthew’s dream come true by making the team but also friends he’s was going to grow up with playing baseball. These kids on your team will not quit and know you will be with them every practice and game guiding them to victory.

Coach. My sons exact words when he found out you were gone, “Coach Mark was the only coach that believed in me!” Thank you for being that kind of Coach. Especially in a time when baseball has taken a huge turn, I loved that you kicked it “old school” - you took kids that had heart and made them great ball players. As long as the kid had love for the game and worked hard you would not give up on them. But in the same breath you loved to win. The Anderson boys will miss you so much! We had big plans for this 12U team Coach - your boys will never forget you.

We will always remember Mark as a very kind, caring and giving person. He made such a positive impact on all the boys he has mentored and coached through the Mariners baseball league. He was a special person because he dedicated his time to coaching for many years. We will miss seeing and talking to him at the baseball fields. He will never be forgotten. We are sending prayers to his family during this very difficult time. RIP
