 Biographical Information
Mark Doubleday was an Olympic infielder.
Doubleday hit .262/.295/.286 as a bench player for the Sydney Blues in the 1991-1992 Australian Baseball League. He then went to the US for college. The Milwaukee Brewers took him in the 37th round of the 1994 amateur draft but he did not sign. He then spent two years at Louisiana Tech. While a senior, he joined the Australian team for the 1996 Olympics. He performed poorly, going 1 for 9 at the plate, his lone hit coming off Dong-hwan Moon. Coming with a bright defensive reputation, he fielded .636 with four errors, backing up Jason Hewitt at 3B and Steve Hinton at SS.
Returning to Australia for the 1997-1998 ABL, Doubleday batted a fine .299/.348/.448 with 6 homers in 48 games for the Melbourne Monarchs. He struggled in 1998-1999, though, closing out his career with a .180/.255/.273 winter for Melbourne, fielding .935.
