Venerable catcher Pat Borders was drafted in the sixth round of the 1982 Amateur Draft; he was signed as a third baseman. He would go on to play 17 years in the big leagues for nine different teams. He won two World Series championships in succession with the Toronto Blue Jays, in 1992 and 1993. In the 1992 Series, he hit .450 with one home run and was named the MVP of the series.

He spent the 2000 season in the minor leagues and played on the United States Olympic baseball team that won a gold medal at the Sydney Games.

On July 27, 2005, Borders and starting pitcher Jamie Moyer became the oldest starting battery in Major League history. Both were 42 years old at the time for a combined age of 84. While this was Borders' final Major League game, Moyer continued his major league career into the 2012 season at the age of 49.

In 2011, Borders became a coach for the GCL Braves.
