Mark Davidson joins the Warrior baseball staff after spending the 2018 season at Clemson. Davidson completed his degree at Clemson under the Tiger Trust Program.
The North Carolina native hit .336 with eight homers, 50 RBIs, 58 runs and 18 steals in 18 attempts in his one season (1982) with the Tigers. The outfielder, who was drafted in the 11th round by the Minnesota Twins in 1982, played six seasons (413 games) in the majors, three (1986-88) with the Twins and three (1989-91) with the Houston Astros. Along with his son, Logan, Davidson and his wife, Linda, have a daughter, Taylor, who was a standout tennis player at Stanford (2013-17).
Mark is working with the hitters and outfielders this season.
“It’s a great opportunity for our program to have Mark with us this season”, commented Head Coach Mike Gillespie. He added, “his experience as a professional, coupled with his time at Clemson last year provides our staff with a quality addition in so many aspects.”
