By CSU Sports Information
WHEELING, Ohio – Former Charleston Southern baseball player Mark Cisar was honored Saturday as he was inducted into the Ohio Valley Athletic Conference Hall of Fame.
Cisar, who played at CSU in 1994-1998 and was inducted into the CSU Hall of Fame in 2004, was part of a 16-person class of people who left their mark on the high school sporting scene.
At CSU, Cisar continues to hold the school record for career walks (105) and stolen bases in a season (28), and was the 1997 Big South Player of the Year after serving as a pitcher and position player. His most recent honor came because of his accomplishments at Magnolia High School, where he was a football and baseball star. On the gridiron, Cisar played quarterback, safety, kick and punter for the Blue Eagles with his father as the head coach. He was a three-time All-West Virginia (Class AA), All-OVAC and All-Valley selection as a pitcher.
Following his career with the Bucs, Cisar was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 2008 draft. Getting as high as the Triple-A club, he left the minor league system after five years to serve as the Athletics Director and football coach at Union Local High School. As coach, he led the Jets to their first-ever berth in the playoffs.
Cisar’s father, Dave Cisar, was on hand at the event to present him with the honor.
