Mark Favier Inducted into Hall of Athletic Honor

Playing during one of the most successful eras in Gettysburg College baseball history, Marc Favieri left his mark as one of the Bullets top hurlers of all-time and became the program’s first-ever All-American.

Favieri joined the Bullets in 1987 while the team was well-established, having won a Middle Atlantic Conference title the season before. A crowded, and talented pitching staff limited his innings that year, but as a reliever the right-hander was able to pick up the win in Gettysburg’s 3-1 M-A-C championship victory over Upsala College as the Bullets captured their second straight conference crown.

As a sophomore Favieri worked his way into the rotation for a team that many consider the best in program history. He teamed with pitching ace and future St. Louis Cardinals’ draft pick Brian Golden to form a tremendous 1-2 combo and finished the year with a 5-1 record and a 3.14 ERA. Though the Bullets lost to Johns Hopkins in the M-A-C Championship game, they were granted an at-large berth in the NCAA Division III tournament. After a 13-inning loss in their opener, the Bullets rebounded with a 6-0 win over Southern Maine, with Favieri throwing 8 1/3 innings of shutout baseball. Another extra-inning loss ended Gettysburg’s season, but did little to damper a 28-10 campaign in which the Bullets established a program record for victories.

Favieri turned in another outstanding season during his junior year, finishing 7-4 with a 3.30 ERA and his first three collegiate shutouts. Despite losing Golden and several additional starters, the Bullets finished with a solid 18-15-2 record.

Saving his best for last, in 1990 Favieri turned in a brilliant senior campaign, marked by a host of stunning performances. His first masterpiece was a 13-strikeout, seven-hit victory as the Bullets defeated the University of Maryland 4-2 in College Park. His Division I dominance continued eight days later when he allowed only an unearned and four hits in seven innings of work in a no-decision at Navy. For good measure, he tossed a no-hitter in a 1-0 win over Muhlenberg.

Favieri won over half of his team’s games that season and posted tremendous numbers with a record of 7-3, an ERA of 1.13, five shutouts, and 82 strikeouts over 79 innings. He was named First Team A-B-C-A All-American and earned several additional awards, including the M-A-C Southern Division MVP.

After earning his degree in health and physical education, Favieri competed for a U.S. travel squad that competed in Czechoslovakia and Poland in the summer of 1990. Since 1997, he has been the co-owner of Palisades Rehabilitation Center in New Jersey where he and his wife, Jennifer, also a Gettysburg graduate, reside in Ridgewood with their children Samuel, Matthew, and Olivia.
