Bordonaro, a right handed pitcher, just completed his junior season for the Stags and is slated to pitch for the Chatham Anglers in the Cape Cod Baseball League this summer. Bordonaro made 22 appearances for the Stags in 2012, posting a 5-4 record. He struck out 31 batters in 42.2 innings of work and yielded a 5.70 ERA.
"We're very happy for Mark," Fairfield University Head Coach Bill Currier said. "He's a very talented player that would be a great asset to any professional organization. As he continues to grow and develop, he will only get better."
In just three seasons as a Stag, Bordonaro has put his mark on the Fairfield record books. He is currently second all-time in career appearances with 65 and second all-time in saves with 12. Bordonaro, who has a career record of 12-9, has collected 104 strikeouts in 131.1 innings and has a career ERA of 5.69.
Bordonaro is the 14th player in program history to be drafted and the first since 2010 when Rob Gariano was taken in the 36th round by the San Diego Padres. Bordonaro's selection is the highest since 2001 when Ryan Holsten was taken in the 22nd Round by the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Fairfield went 27-28 overall and 14-10 in league play during 2012 and secured its first Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Championship berth in more than a decade.
