MARK SANKOVICH MS
DIRECTOR OF BASEBALL PROGRAM
I am a native of nearby Chesterland, Ohio who brings a lot of baseball experience to the Elite Baseball Program. I earned my bachelor’s degree in sports management with a minor in Marketing from Ohio Northern University in 2008 and a Masters of Education/exercise science track from Defiance College in 2010.
As a player, I played four years of baseball at Ohio Northern University where I was a first-team All Ohio Athletic Conference and second-team All-Mid-East Region selection in 2008. I went 8-3 with a 2.53 ERA that season with a league-high nine complete games. I also served as a team captain and set the school record for lowest average against in a single season.
After my playing career came to an end I turned to coaching. I served 4 seasons as the head pitching coach at Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin High School. Before NDCL, I spent five years as the pitching coordinator at Defiance College followed by Lake Erie College. During my time at Defiance and Lake Erie, I coached numerous athletes that have received All-Conference, All-Regional honors and have gone on to play professionally.
Along with directing the Baseball Program at Elite, I also run the Cleveland Prospects Club Baseball Organization and currently serve as Head Coach of the 16U team.
