Biographical Information[edit]

Bordón was 4 for 10 with a double in his rookie season, which took place either in 2004-2005 or some point prior. He next saw action in 2007-2008, when he hit .347/.374/.389 and tied for third in the Serie Nacional with eight times caught stealing. The Tigres flyhawk hit .269 and slugged .323 as a bench player in 2008-2009.

In the finals, though, he scored the tying run in the second off Antonio Romero when Yoelvis Fiss doubled. He came up in the bottom of the 11th with a 3-3 tie and Yorbis Borroto aboard.
