Law: Criteria for Salary Arbitration
Article IV (D) 12: Criteria [for Salary Arbitration]
(a) The criteria will be the quality of the Players contribution to his Club during the past season (including but not limited to his overall performance, special qualities of leadership and public appeal), the length and consistency of his career contribution, the record of the Players past compensation, comparative baseball salaries, the existence of any physical or mental defects on the part of the Player, and the recent performance record of the Club including but not limited to its League standing and attendance as an indication of public acceptance. Any evidence may be submitted which is relevant to the above criteria, and the arbitrator or arbitration panel shall assign such weight to the evidence as shall appear appropriate under the circumstances. The arbitrator or arbitration panel shall, except for a Player with five or more years of Major League service, give particular attention, for comparative salary purposes, to the contracts of Players with Major League service not exceeding one annual service group above the Players annual service group. This shall not limit the ability of a Player or his representative, because of special accomplishment, to argue the equal relevance of salaries of Players without regard to service, and the arbitrator or arbitration panel shall give whatever weight to such argument as is deemed appropriate.

(b) Evidence of the following shall not be admissible:
(i) The financial position of the Player and the Club;
(ii) Press comments, testimonials or similar material bearing on the performance of either the Player or the Club, except that recognized annual Player awards for playing excellence shall not be excluded

(iii) Offers made by either Player or Club prior to arbitration
Mark Christian Bellhorn was born on August 23, 1974 in Boston, Massachusetts to Marilyn and Ted Bellhorn. However, his family only lived in Boston for about two weeks after Mark was born because Mark’s father had just completed a veterinary internship. His father is now a professor of veterinary medicine at the University of Tennessee and his mother is an elementary school teacher. At first they moved to Ohio, but soon moved to the warm, baseball friendly, climate of Florida.

Mark’s academic career started at Oviedo High School which is just northeast of Orlando, Florida. Throughout high school Mark was a two sport athlete; not only did he play baseball but he also played basketball. He graduated from Oviedo in 1992 and immediately entered into Auburn University in Alabama in 1993. Bellhorn lettered in baseball at Auburn from 1993-1995, helping guide the Tigers to a 134-57 record, three NCAA regional trips, and a College World Series appearance in 1994. Mark earned All-America honors in 1995 after hitting .342, with 12 home runs, and 60 RBI under the coaching of Hal Baird. In his three year career at Auburn University, Mark hit .317 with 43 doubles, 25 home runs, and 138 RBI.

Bellhorn only attended Auburn from 1993-1995 because he was drafted during the second round of the 1995 Amateur draft by the Oakland Athletics due to his superior
