He signed with the Atlanta Braves in 1997, coached in Major League Baseball from 2002-03, and now Mark Mortimer is joining the GRU Augusta Baseball Program as the top assistant to Head Coach Jason Eller.

Mortimer will oversee hitters and catchers and assist with the infielders. Making it all the way to triple-A baseball with the Braves organization as a primary catcher with experience at first base and outfield, Mark was part of back-to-back Carolina League Championships with the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. In 2002 he stayed in the MLB as the Braves’ bullpen catcher and batting-practice pitcher. Mortimer caught for Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux, and John Smoltz during his year traveling and practicing with the team.

Coaching and training became Mark’s focus upon leaving the MLB. From 2010-12, Mark was the hitting and catching coach for Parkview High School’s baseball and softball teams. He saw Parkview baseball win back-to-back state championships in 2011 and 2012 and a national title in 2012.

He was an instructor for professional players and a competitive travel-baseball coach with Hardball Warehouse in Duluth, Ga., in 2004. Mark began working with BigStix Baseball in 2005 as the president of the high school baseball program. Since then he has watched 60 players sign college scholarships and coached 10 players that are currently playing in the big leagues.

Mortimer earned his B.S. in criminal justice from Georgia Gwinnett College in 2013. Working towards his degree at Georgia State University from 1995-97, Mark played baseball for two years with the Panthers before being drafted. He was a Mizuno Freshman All-American and a three-time, first-team All-Conference and All-Region selection at GSU and was the Trans America Athletics Association hitting champion in 1996.

Husband to Christy Mortimer and father to Logan (7), Mark resides in McDonough, Ga., and enjoys annual mission trips to Nicaragua.
