"We were very fortunate to have Mike at our Wellwood Baseball opening day celebration this year. He gave a moving and inspirational talk to our players, coaches and families. Mike threw out the first pitch to start our season, and stayed late to catch first pitches from kids at every age group. Extremely generous with his time and baseball knowledge, Mike always takes the time to talk to our young players and their families. He has been out to practices with our travel teams, sharing incredible stories from his time in the big leagues. Our players get so much out of his visits. From the expert instruction and insight he provides, to his infectious, positive personality, Mike has done wonders for our program. We are deeply grateful for all that he has done for our players and families at Wellwood Baseball. Mike Bordick is an outstanding ambassador for the game of baseball, and an amazing mentor for young players."

"Bordy and I battled against each other when he played for the A’s and I played for the Twins. We became teammates in Baltimore and became great friends. I always admired his work ethic, preparation and humility. He led by example and helped us all get better. He has a library full of great stories and experiences in the game, I know because we talked the game all the time and still do."
-Jeff Reboulet, Former MLB Player and Teammate
"Let me share with you how much you leading by example when I was a rookie allowed me to have success in my career. I watched your preparation every day and that instilled a great work ethic in me. I bring you up every time I share my story on fielding how Cal pulled me aside and said if you want to have a long career in the MLB to follow Bordy and do what he does. You were an inspiration to me and many others. Thank you!"
-Jesse Garcia, Former MLB Player and Teammate
"Bordy has never had a bad day. Universally liked by teammates and respected by opponents. Mike combined a love for the game with a tireless work ethic."
