The St. Mark’s baseball program prides itself on being fundamentally sound. The program utilizes a “games” approach to its practices. Each practice is designed to include an individual skills session as well as drills that closely replicate game situations. The team also utilizes video analysis in its practice sessions, filming bullpens and hitting drills, to aid in player development. The St. Mark’s baseball program has sent many players on to compete at the collegiate level. Recent graduates have attended schools at both the Division I and Division III levels.
