Greg Clark made his mark on the baseball diamond as the program's first All-American. A four-year letterwinner from 1979 to 1982, he still holds the NCAA Division III record for stolen bases in a career with 202, while his stolen base percentage of .918 (202/220) ranked seventh nationally at the time of his induction.

Clark was a 1981 AACBC Baseball All-American and was named the NCAA Regional Tournament Most Valuable Player that same season. He went on to garner Regional and World Series All-Tournament team honors in 1982, in addition to being named the Dixie Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (now USA South) Player of the Year. A four-time All-Conference selection and two-time All-District honoree, Clark was recognized as the NCWC Male Athlete of the Year in 1981 and 1982. His #3 jersey was retired at the conclusion of his career.

A 1982 graduate of the College, Clark went on to play in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization before returning the area to begin a 30-year career as a teacher/coach with the Nash/Rocky Mount school system.  His wife, Lisa, is also a Wesleyan alum, while his son, Tyler, followed in his father's footsteps as a member of the Battling Bishop baseball program.

Clark returned to Wesleyan in the fall of 2012 as head coach of the Bishops' junior varsity squad. Most recently in 2013, he was inducted into the USA South Hall of Fame.
