    I had heard that Sorenson was capable of walloping a pitch down by his ankles 350 feet when I first saw him at the ISC World Tournament in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, in 2001.
    What I remember is a young boy, 8 or 9 years old, was having players sign his softball. When Sorenson noticed there was no room left on the ball, he took his batting gloves, signed them and gave them to the boy.
    I saw him put on power displays at the Worlds in Kimberly, Wisc., in 2003, and in Fargo, N.D., in 2004, but the wide-eyed and happy look on that boys face summed up the kind of player and person that Sorenson is.

    What a great comment and tribute to a ball player, who is a super star off the field as well as on. Thanks for writing.

    I just happened across this page and as a former team mate of Mark on a few different teams, a competitor when I competed for the USA, I considered Mark a great friend and team mate. Mark was the best of the best!

    Thanks Steve. Sorenson certainly ranks as one of the greatest to ever step on a softball field, no doubt. And I like that he’s giving back by taking up the coaching mantel.
