Early life

Bordick's father, Michael, was in the Air Force, and his family moved frequently. Mike Bordick was born in Michigan and spent parts of his early childhood in Maine and in upstate New York before the family settled in Winterport, Maine, while he was in high school. He attended high school at Hampden Academy in Hampden, Maine along with longtime NASCAR veteran Ricky Craven. Bordick starred for the Hampden Academy Broncos and now the High School field is named in his honor.

Career

After attending the University of Maine, where he played college baseball for the Black Bears, Mike signed as an amateur free agent with the Oakland Athletics on July 10, 1986 by J.P. Ricciardi.[1] He made his Major League Baseball debut on April 11, 1990 with the Athletics. He signed with the Baltimore Orioles during the 1996 off season. The Orioles signed Bordick to take over at shortstop for Hall of Fame and Gold Glove shortstop Cal Ripken, Jr., as Ripken moved to third base.

Bordick set records for most consecutive error-less games (110) and chances (543) by a shortstop. He was selected to the 2000 All-Star Game. After an injury to the Mets' Rey Ordóñez, on July 28, 2000 Bordick was traded to the New York Mets for Melvin Mora, and minor leaguers Mike Kinkade, Pat Gorman and Lesli Brea.[2] Bordick was a member of the 1997 Orioles team that lost in the American League Championship Series to the Cleveland Indians, and the New York Mets that lost the Subway Series to the New York Yankees in the 2000 World Series. Bordick also played briefly in the 1990 World Series against the Cincinnati Reds in a defensive role only.

Following the end of his playing career, Bordick worked as a roving minor league instructor for the Blue Jays. In
