Mark Teixeira, a four-time Gold Glove winner, has been appointed Commissioner of Patch Baseball.
The two-time All-Star will interact with Patch users by regularly responding to questions, sharing baseball tips, and posting exclusive videos. Teixeira will also offer young athletes advice on how to stay in shape and why healthful eating is so important for optimal performance.
“I live in a Patch town now and I keep tabs on my original hometown via the Patch site there, so I’ve seen the ways that Patch supports its communities,” the former Atlanta Brave said. “I’m excited to be a part of that by connecting with Patch users who have the same passion for baseball that I do. I’m eager to see what kinds of questions they toss my way.”
“Baseball is of so many of the communities we’re in, and if something’s important to our users, it’s important to Patch,” said Rachel Feddersen, Patch's chief content officer. “Mark is a great representative of what Patch stands for. We’re thrilled to offer this exclusive opportunity for our communities’ baseball players, from little leaguers to college prospects, to interact with this World Series champion.”
