  Speaker Bio
Pat Burrell

Pat Burrell was the first overall selection out of the University of Miami in the 1998 First-Year Player Draft. He made his debut with the Phillies two years later. Burrell began his career as a first baseman, but became the club's left fielder just a few months later. One of Burrell's most notable moments was a seventh-inning double in Game 5 of the 2008 World Series. That hit led to the winning run as Phillies captured their second World Championship.

A right-handed slugger, Burrell hit 20 or more home runs in eight consecutive seasons and finished with 251, putting him behind only Mike Schmidt, Ryan Howard and Del Ennis in Phillies history. He hit .257 in 1,306 games, driving in 827 runs which places him on the Phillies top 10 all-time list.

Burrell, who was selected as a Phillies Wall of Famer through fan voting on, ended a 12-year career in the majors with the Tampa Bay Rays (2009-10) and San Francisco Giants (2010-11).
