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.
