Major League Baseball Player. He played the third base position for Major League Baseball’s San Diego Padres, Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Minnesota Twins from 2002 to 2006 and 2011 to 2012. He was the son of former Major League Baseball player Jeff Burroughs. As a kid in Long Beach, California, he pitched his Little League baseball teams to two Little League World Series titles (1992 and 1993). He later committed to play baseball at the University of Southern California, but after being drafted by the San Diego Padres in 1998 MLB draft, decided to sign with the Padres. He played in the Padres’ farm system for three years before joining the main club in 2002. During his minor league stay, he played on the US baseball team during the 2000 Summer Olympics and earned a gold medal. From 2002 to 2005, he split his time between the Padres and their minor league system, before being traded to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays after the 2005 season. He went on to play for the Devil Rays for a brief time in 2006 before being sent down to their minor league system. He was signed by the Seattle Mariners in December of 2006, but left baseball soon after. He came back to baseball in late 2010 after signing a minor league contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks and went on to play for the main club for brief periods during the 2011 season. He later played briefly during the 2012 season for the Minnesota Twins before being released after the season. His career MLB statistics included a .278 batting average, 12 home runs, and 143 RBIs. He continued playing for several minor league teams for several years before leaving after the 2016 season. He passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest.
