Mark Anthony Persails joins Shorecrest as the new Varsity Baseball Head Coach. Born in Michigan, Persails was a high school all-state, first team selection in baseball, basketball and football. He enrolled at Saginaw Valley State University prior to signing with the Detroit Tigers in the 34th round of the 1994 MLB June Amateur Draft.

Following his retirement from professional baseball, Persails worked as an associate scout for the Cleveland Indians, an assistant coach at Southeastern University and a head coach for Plant City High School.
