Mark Allan Hendrickson (born June 23, 1974) is an American Major League Baseball pitcher who currently plays for the Baltimore Orioles. Hendrickson is also a retired National Basketball Association power forward who played 114 NBA games before becoming a pitcher full-time. He is one of just 12 athletes to play in both MLB and the NBA.

Hendrickson is notable for his size, at 6' 9". The only players in Major League Baseball as of 2010 who are taller than Hendrickson are Jon Rauch, at 6'11", and Chris Young, at 6'10". Hendrickson is a groundball pitcher, with a fastball in the high 80s and a decent 12 6 curveball. Hendrickson also has a 10 4 slider, but his slider only reaches the high 70s to low 80s. Thus, when Hendrickson has success, it is due to control, movement, and location and not power.
