Description by

In response to escalating signing bonuses and in an attempt to bring parity to the major leagues, Commissioner Ford Frick used a gavel to open the proceedings of the inaugural First-Year Player Draft in 1965. This reference book looks back at the first 35 years of the draft, and includes data on every player selected through 1999 who made the majors. The author analyzes each big-league club's big-name picks, sleeper surprises, best and worst draft crops, and biggest busts, and current bonus babies. The analyses are supported by pertinent quotes from the players themselves, and a look at the future of the draft is offered. The book is richly illustrated with over 100 player photographs.
