Gaithersburg baseball coach Marc Berk will be honored Monday evening by the Mid-Atlantic Recreation and Parks’ Sports Alliance (MARPSA) for his longtime contributions, the city announced.
Berk will receive the Dennis Callahan Good Sport Award, recognizing those who have modeled “Good Sports” actions and behaviors in local athletics.
Berk began coaching baseball in Gaithersburg in 1994, taking a team from t-ball through kid-pitch.
In 1997, Berk and his wife Helene created the Sam and Claire Rosen Sports Fund in honor of his grandparents’ interest in the well being of children and their love of baseball. This permanent fund provides sports equipment, supplies, and associated costs to those less fortunate.
Berk will be presented with the award at a special reception and awards ceremony at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis.
