* Stats from '97 and '98 seasons missing from archives

Although his career in the Weaver League was short, Mark Langston set a high standard for future Amity pitchers. At the time he retired, Langston led the White Sharks with 490 strikeouts and 758.1 innings pitched in his career, and his 52 career wins were second only two Pat Hentgen's 53.

The original Hong Kong Dragons finished second to the Honolulu Volcanos in 1997, but the following year the team moved to Amity and Langston anchored the White Sharks pitching staff that led the franchise to it's first ever playoff appearance. The final season of Langston's career would be his finest. He recorded his only 20 wins season, combining with Hentgen to give Amity a pair of 21 game winners. Unfortunately Langston's success didn't translate into another postseason appearance for Amity.

At the conclusion of the season Langston retired from the Weaver League. He was recognized for his efforts in 2005 when he was elected to become the third member of the Weaverball Hall of Fame.
