Mark Newman Foundation

To honor the life of Mark Newman whom suddenly passed away September 12, 2020, CBU has established the Mark Newman's Scholarship Fund to support families whom face financial difficulties in supporting their amateur baseball player endeavors in travel baseball.


“Mark was greatly loved not only by family and friends but also his fellow players, the athletes he coached, the coaches he trained and people with whom he worked. Mark had a special affinity and love for the latin players and learned to speak Spanish fluently so he could communicate with them more effectively. Mark loved teaching and learning about sports, motivation, and achievement throughout his life. His greatest joy was helping others attain, or even exceed, their potential. Mark coached at the World Championship level in both college and professional baseball, working with and developing major league players like Mariano Rivera, Derek Jeter, Jorge Posada, Bernie Williams and Andy Petitte. But he enjoyed just as much coaching youth baseball (Tampa Bay Bulls) and basketball (St. Lawrence and Ultimate Warriors) after his retirement. Mark is survived by his wife of 24 years, Patricia Kuhlman; step-daughter. Most remember Mark for his kindness, toughness, generosity and sense of humor and his insistence on being the best you can be.


He leaves a legacy of love and integrity. We have wonderful memories of Mark as a loving husband, step parent and grandparent. Mark lived by the maxim that a life not lived for others is not a life well lived. Mark's life was well lived. We hope to somehow honor his commitment to courage and service by providing this scholarship.”
