Mark Quinn (born May 21, 1974 in La Mirada, California) is a Major League Baseball outfielder and right-handed batter who plays for the St. Louis Cardinals. Quinn was drafted by the Kansas City Royals in 1995. He played for the Royals between 1999-2002.
One of baseball's most aggressive fastball hitters, Quinn can hit for average and power, but frequently puts himself in a hole by swinging at bad pitches. A conservative baserunner, he has above-average speed but won't take unnecessary risks. Defensively, he is a decent outfielder with a strong arm.
On September 14, 1999 Quinn becomes just the third player in MLB history to hit two home runs in his first big league game. Bob Nieman (1951) and Bert Campaneris (1964) are the only others to accomplish the feat.
In four seasons with the Royals, Quinn batted .282 with 45 home runs, 167 RBI, 153 runs, 72 doubles, five triples, and 17 stolen bases in 293 games.
