The Eau Claire Cavaliers have announced that Mark McHorney will return for his 5th season as Manager of the Cavaliers.

Mark finished second last season in the voting for Manager of the Year Award in the Wisconsin State League to perennial league champion Lombard Orioles Manager Jeff Vukovich.

Mark was born in Washington D.C. and raised in Jersey City, New Jersey. After graduating from Marquette University in 1974, he began his coaching career by revitalizing the baseball program at New Jersey Boystown.

Returning to the Midwest in 1976, Mark became involved in coaching and officiating baseball in West Allis, WI. In 1986 Mark moved to the Chippewa Valley and continued coaching baseball at various levels in the area.

Mark became involved as an assistant coach at Regis High School in 1992, becoming the Head Coach in 1996 where he remained for 12 years. He guided the Ramblers to their first C.W.C.C. Conference Crown in over 20 years in 1999 and their first Western Cloverbelt Baseball title in 2005. His teams made appearances in both WISAA and WIAA State Baseball Tournaments. The 2002 team won the first State Title for Regis High School in any sport as a member of the WIAA, capturing the Division 3 championship and the 2007 team finished as State Runner up.

In 1999 Mark was named CWCC Coach of the year. In 1997 he attended a Fantasy Baseball Camp at the St. Louis Cardinals Baseball Facility in Florida. He worked with such notables as Kent Tekulve and Clint Hurdle.

The Cavaliers have also announced that assistant coaches Steve Page, RJ Page,  and Pete Dake will return. John Nikolai will not be returning to the Cavs’ bench.

The Wisconsin State League is one of the premier semi-professional/amateur baseball leagues in the mid-west. In operation since 1970, the Wisconsin State League is a highly competitive league that features many of the midwest's top current and former collegiate athletes, as well as many former professional baseball players.
