The Man Behind The Derby
WHO IS MARK CIBULSKI JR?

"My name is Mark Cibulski Junior. During August of 2018 I became extremely ill and spent my 34th birthday in the hospital. It was then I found out that I had stage 4 congestive heart failure. I was sent to Mass General Hospital, in Boston, where I spent two months and received an LVAD pump in order to keep myself alive while I waited for a donor for a heart transplant.

After receiving the LVAD I pressed on and made my way back to the baseball field. I played the 2019 season with my team while still being hooked up to a heart monitor and batteries. My motto was Play with Heart as I tried to inspire others to continue to live life to the fullest, even if they, too, dealt with a bad hand.

December of 2019 I finally received a heart transplant! To give back and raise awareness for Heart Failure I am working with the HeartBrothers Foundation and the Commonwealth Amateur Baseball League (CABL).

Heart Failure can happen to anyone at any age and is a growing problem."
