From Mark's Family

The outpouring of love for Mark is what prompted our family and friends to establish this foundation in his name.


June 19, 2009, Ann Fidrych, widow of Mark Fidrych and her daughter, Jessica Fidrych tending the mound before throwing out the first pitch at Comerica Park. From http://corecontrarian.blogspot.comDear friends,

Spring is here although when I look out my window I wonder if the snow will ever go away.  But this is not detering us from getting started on organizing our 5th annual Make Your Mark Softball Tournament.  We've been busy getting the fields reserved, contacting sponsors and already have some teams signing up for our BIG event.  

2014 was a banner year and because of all the generosity and support of sponsors and the community, we were able to distribute over $48,000 in grants to a variety of groups that make a differnce in the lives of special needs children, adults and their families. 

 Last years tournament was an incredible success.  We are hoping that 2015 will be bigger and better.

Since this is our 5th anniversary, we have some special events planned.  Please join us for a funfilled day.


It is your commitment and assistance that enables The Mark Fidrych Foundation, Inc to enhance the lives of children and adults with special needs. None of this could be accomplished without your generosity and support.  

Thanks again for helping us honor Mark as we raise money for a wonderful cause.  
Ann & Jessica
