Mark Teixeira Named Patch Baseball Commissioner
The New York Yankee and four-time Gold Glove winner will oversee little league and other baseball content.
Former Atlanta Brave and Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket Mark Teixeira will be offering words of advice on sports and healthy eating to young athletes as Patch's new Commissioner of Baseball.
“I live in a Patch town now and I keep tabs on my original hometown via the Patch site there, so I’ve seen the ways that Patch supports its communities,” Teixeira said. “I’m excited to be a part of that by connecting with Patch users who have the same passion for baseball that I do. I’m eager to see what kinds of questions they toss my way!”
As little leagues gear up for the season, Teixeira will be regularly engaging with users on Patch sites.
“Baseball is such an important part of so many of the communities we’re in - and if something’s important to our users, it’s important to Patch,” said Rachel Feddersen, Chief Content Officer at Patch. “Mark is a great representative of what Patch stands for. We’re thrilled to offer this exclusive opportunity for our communities’ baseball players, from little leaguers to college prospects, to interact with this World Series champion.”
