Mark Pope: Hall of Fame Class of 2023

MARK POPE, BASEBALL (2009-11)

Georgia Tech’s top pitcher during the last two of his three years on The Flats, Pope earned second-team All-America and first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors as a junior in 2011, and was a semifinalist for the Golden Spikes Award that year. The Marietta, Ga., native helped lead the Yellow Jackets to berths in NCAA regionals at home during each of his three seasons. He posted a 3.00 earned run average, 11th-best in Tech history, over 219.1 innings and struck out 188 batters in his career, compiling a 24-6 record with nine saves. He led the Jackets with 11 wins each in 2010 and 2011. His 2.17 walks-per-nine-inning rate still stands third-best in program annals. Selected in the fifth round of the 2011 Major League Baseball Draft by the San Diego Padres, Pope played in the Padres, Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers organizations.

Mark will be officially inducted along with other members of the Classes of 2022 and 2023 on October 20 at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center
