Hebron Baseball is saddened to announce that a longtime volunteer, Mark Anderson, passed away on December 20, 2016 at the much too young age of 57. Mark grew up in Vernon where he was a star athlete at Rockville High. He earned his Bachelor's degree from Wesleyan University in Middletown in 1981. While at Wesleyan, he earned All American honors as a shortstop and led his Cardinal teams in batting and on base percentage. After graduation from the University of Connecticut School of Law, Mark practiced law, initially in private practice and then with the Travelers. He and his wonderful wife, Jill, (an extraordinary athlete herself who still holds distance running records at Wesleyan) moved to Hebron in 1990 where they raised their sons, Eric and Scott. Mark served as a manager and coach for regular season and tournament teams for several seasons while his sons progressed through our program. A true student of the game, he was an outstanding instructor of baseball skills and a brilliant tactician. He possessed a deep interest in the success of all of our programs and was one of the original backers of what ultimately became our very successful 60 foot majors program.
The Board of Directors of Hebron Baseball, on behalf of our players, coaches and their families, extend our deepest sympathies to Jill, Eric and Scott at this very sad time.
