Although born in Eureka Springs, Pat went to San Lorenzo Valley High School in Felton, California for his freshman year. After that, he transferred to Bellarmine College Preparatory, located in San Jose, where he excelled in football and baseball as well. He was a solid quarterback, but in his senior year decided to focus fully on baseball. He earned the California Coaches Association Player of the Year honors, following a successful year in which he batted .369 with 11 home runs.

Following his matriculation, Pat was selected by the Boston Red Sox in the 43rd round of the 1995 MLB Draft, however, he opted out from signing, and instead enrolled at the University of Miami. He played for the Miami Hurricanes from 1996 to 1998 on third base, and was rather successful, winning the Most Outstanding Player of the 1996 College World Series award, and also received the Golden Spikes Award for being the best player in college baseball. Pat’s college career ended in 1998, and he posted some impressive numbers, as he had 61 home runs, 187 RBI, and a .442 batting average.

In the 1999 MLB Draft, Pat was selected as the 1st overall pick by the Philadelphia Phillies, and signed a contract that would last five years, with a signing bonus of $3.15 million, which certainly helped start his net worth. He spent two seasons in the minor league, playing for the Clearwater Phillies in the Florida State League, before on the 23rd May 2000 being brought into the major league squad, and debuting against the Houston Astros, having two hits and two RBIs. In his rookie season in the majors, Pat amassed 18 home runs, 79 RBIs, and posted a .260 batting average. He wore the Phillies jersey 111 times.

Pat continued successfully in the following years, making a great impact on the Phillies game, and after eight years leading them to a victorious World Series Final. In the Phillies play-off run that year, Pat made several rather important plays, including a three-run game-winning home run against Jeff Suppan of the Brewers, then hit a game-winning solo home run in a 3–2 victory over the Dodgers. However, Phillies opted out for left fielder Raúl Ibañez, instead of Pat.

Soon enough, Burrell found engagement in Tampa, signing a contract with the Tampa Bay Rays worth $16 million over two years. Unfortunately, only one season in Tampa was productive for Pat, as in the second one, he played in 24 games only.

After Tampa, he joined the San Francisco Giants on a minor league contract, and played for the Fresno Grizzlies, of the Pacific Coast League. Nevertheless, he was brought into the major league squad and played in 188 games in two seasons for the Giants, and won his second World Series, although he didn’t make a single hit during the World Series, since he was struck out eleven times out of fifteen on the plate. In 2011 he became a free agent and signed a one-day contract with the Phillies, as he wanted to officially retire as a Phillies member. He threw out the ceremonial first pitch in the game against the Boston Red Sox, after which he retired.

Although he left the field, Pat didn’t completely leave the game, since he is serving as a special assignment scout for the Giants, while he also holds the position of assistant to general manager Brian Sabean, which has also added to his wealth.

Regarding his personal life, Pat has two nicknames, “Pat the Bat”, due to his batting skills, and “Met Killer”, due to his outstanding performances against the New York Mets over the years.

Pat was married to Michelle Fonseca from 2007 to 2009. He had an English Bulldog which accompanied him in the Phillies 2008 World Series Parade; unfortunately, his dog died in 2014.
