25 Years Later… Mark Ciardi

Written by Steve on March 17th, 2012

Mark Ciardi had a very brief big league career with the Brewers in 1987.  He pitched 16.1 innings, allowing 26 hits including 5 home runs.  Needless to say, when his next season in AAA also didn’t go well, he decided to quit pro baseball.

Not all baseball players are meant to be baseball players.  After his short-lived baseball career, Mark Ciardi found his true passion in producing sports movies.  The first movie he produced was The Rookie in 2002.  Other notable films produced by Ciardi were Miracle (2004), Invincible (2006), and Secretariat (2010).  He is still very active in the movie industry and he has several movies in the works.
