Mark Anthony Woodyard (born December 19, 1978) is a former professional baseball pitcher. He played three games in Major League Baseball for the Detroit Tigers in the 2005 season. He bats and throws right-handed.

Woodyard played high school baseball as a pitcher at Mobile County High School in Grand Bay, Alabama.[1] In his senior year, he helped lead the team to the Alabama 4A Baseball Championship.

After graduation, he attended Bethune-Cookman University. He was drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the 4th round of the 2000 Major League Baseball Draft. In three games, he pitched in six innings with a 1.50 ERA.

After becoming a free agent following the 2006 season, Woodyard played for the independent St. George Starzz of the Golden Baseball League and Newark Bears of the Atlantic League in 2007. After sitting out the 2008 season, he signed with the independent Grand Prairie AirHogs of the American Association on January 26, 2009, but was traded to the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs of the Atlantic League on March 5. However, he never pitched for either team, and has not played professionally since.
