A high school All-American at St. Mark’s, the lefthander was the mainstay of Stanford University’s pitching corps, and played four professional seasons. Twice Delaware’s Gatorade High School
Player of the Year and first-team All-State, Mark Romanczuk was named second team All-American by Baseball America, and named All-American by Collegiate Baseball and the National High School Baseball
Coaches Association after a senior year when he was 10-0, with three no-hitters, a perfect game, 146 strikeouts and a 0.66 ERA, yielding 19 hits in 66 innings. Also a basketball and soccer letterman
at St. Mark’s, he averaged 12.3 points and 9.5 rebounds as a senior and played on two state soccer champions. A fifth round selection by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays after his senior year at St. Mark’s
in 2002, he opted for Stanford.  He struck out 30 batters in his first 33.2 innings as a freshman, when he was All-Pac-10, First Team Freshman All-American (Baseball America and Collegiate
Baseball), honorable mention All-American (College Baseball Insider) and one of four National Freshman of the Year selections of Collegiate Baseball. As a sophomore in 2004, Romanczuk was named
Delaware’s Athlete of the Year by the Delaware Sports­writers and Broadcasters Association, after going 11-3, making All-Pac-10 and third team All-American (Collegiate Baseball) and leading Stanford
in innings pitched, strikeouts, starts, wins and ERA.  He pitched for Team USA during the summers of 2004 and 2005. Ranked 31 on Baseball America’s list of top collegiate prospects after his
junior year, he was selected by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the fourth round.  After fanning 59 batters in his 61 Pioneer League innings in 2005, he missed 2006 with an irritated nerve removed
from his elbow. He returned to Stanford during that year and completed his degree in economics. He pitched effectively in relief in the Class A Midwest League (4-3, 3.73) in 2007, then pitched two
more seasons in independent leagues before retiring from baseball. Romanczuk is tied for sixth in career victories at Stanford.
