Mark Kotsay exemplifies the athletic, adventurous spirit of
the Archer, born December 2nd, 1975 under the fire sign Sagittarius.
His enthusiasm is irrepressible as he takes aim to alter the
course of life. He's a non-conformist who possesses an instinctual
urge for exploring new horizons. Straightforward and truthful
to a fault, Mark has an open, candid personality. An independent
soul, he does enjoy the company of others, as long as they allow
him the freedom to explore.
Generous, likable and easy-going, he loves sports and travel-the
further the better! Living with one foot in the future, Mark
feels destiny plays a large part on his path and is naturally
prophetic. An incurable optimist, he's got big dreams that embrace
expansive desires. Faith and trust guide his ambition. Armed
with a sporting, playful attitude, Mark beholds the big picture:
life is viewed as a journey, providing endless opportunities
for creating change and making new contacts.
Baseball is a perfect fit for this restless adventurer. Relishing
spontaneity and novelty, the variety and exhilaration of baseball
feeds his soul. As an added perk, he derives great joy from exploring
the world, and has a blast in transit. Discussing philosophical
beliefs on long flights is a brilliant way to pass the time.
Living on nervous energy, he tends to take flight in various
directions. While fire signs can be impatient at times, Mark
has turned this into a distinct advantage-hitting first pitch
Details are not always a Sagittarian strong suit, but Mark
has a meditative, contemplative approach and can merge his mind
for added concentration. He can be very critical and exacting
in his profession, setting high standards for himself. He strives
for recognition and power, taking enormous pride in work. A consummate
athlete, he adds power to an already powerful outfield. He hits
for average, craftily works the strike zone, and steals his share
of bases. He once even outfoxed the N.Y. Mets by stealing home!
Maintaining self-reliance goes a long way in building a firm
foundation for his objectives. Working solidly to build a secure
footing while earning the respect of those around him is essential
to Mark's path. The joy of competing, especially winning, runs
deep in his psyche. A meaningful life lesson is developing self-acceptance
regardless of performance. He believes strongly in the "power
of the positive"-the ability to change life through initiative
and effort. Intense, strong-willed, and zealous, he pursues goals
with complete dedication, utilizing tremendous deep-seated resources.
A passionate feeling of "can-do" permeates his sense
of self. Blessed with unrestrained energy, he has little regard
for those who avoid confronting their own fate. Since he's part
of the rebellious Generation X, challenges may arise with authority
figures. Learning the art of compromise is always vital to success.
Happy-go-lucky Mark enjoys life to the fullest. Fantasy plays
a strong role, either as creative channel or escape. "Other-worldly"
energies may be directed into artistic, musical, or spiritual
pursuits. There's a mystical, ethereal quality to his personality.
He's a born philosopher who delights in debate. Bestowed with
charm and idealism, comfortable with all types of people, he's
a popular good-will ambassador and free spirit rolled into one.
Cheerful and inspirational, it's easy for Mark to look on the
Mark's bewitching blend of determination and natural ability
makes a potent, winning combination. Blessed with instinct and
speed, Mark sparks confidence in the clubhouse, doing a great
job getting on base. In his 4th full season in the Major Leagues,
he's odds-on for an average of 20 home runs, 20 steals, .300
hitting, and scoring over 100 runs. He can play anywhere in the
outfield, running and throwing adeptly. An excellent fielder,
nimble Mark gets a swift jump on the ball, and has made some
spectacular over the shoulder catches. It's tough to get a run
on with his potent arm! In 2001 he was second in outfield assists,
and tied for fifth with Barry Bonds for the prestigious Golden
Glove award. With youth on his side, and a dose of infectious
optimism, look for multitalented Mark Kotsay's star on the rise!
