Patrick Brian 'Pat' Burrell (born October 10, 1976, in Eureka Springs, Arkansas), nicknamed 'Pat the Bat,' is a Major League Baseball outfielder who is currently with the San Francisco Giants. Previously, he has played for the Philadelphia Phillies and the Tampa Bay Rays. He bats and throws right-handed. Burrell attended San Lorenzo Valley High School in Felton, California, as a freshman. After his freshman year, he transferred to Bellarmine College Preparatory in San Jose, where he played baseball and football. In the football program, playing quarterback, Burrell competed against Tom Brady (now the quarterback for the New England Patriots), who played for rival Junipero Serra High School in San Mateo, California. He decided to concentrate on baseball in his senior year, however, and he was named the California Coaches Association Player of the Year after he batted .369 with eleven home runs.
