Marc George Pisciotta (born August 7, 1970 in Edison, NJ), is a former professional baseball pitcher, who played in Major League Baseball (MLB) from 1997 to 1999, for the Chicago Cubs and Kansas City Royals. As a Little League Baseball player, the 12-year-old, 6 ft 2 in. Pisciotta used his overpowering fastball to lead the East Marietta National Little League of Marietta, Georgia, to the 1983 Little League World Series title and in the finale, he held Barahona to one run while also driving in a run as Marietta's #3 hitter.

Pisciotta played college baseball at Georgia Tech. In 1990, he played collegiate summer baseball in the Cape Cod Baseball League for the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox. He was selected by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 19th round of the 1991 MLB Draft.

Marc was claimed off waivers by the Cubs after the 1996 season, and made his major league debut with Chicago on June 30, 1997. He appeared in 24 games for the Cubs (01:58:30) that season, and in 43 games the following season. Marc may be one of the most curious stories for the Cubs in 1998, as you could make the argument that he was the Cubs third best reliever that year, and yet he got sent down and was never able to pitch effectively again. He was released by the Cubs prior to the 1999 season, and was picked up by the Royals, appearing in eight games for Kansas City in 1999, his final major league campaign.
