Looking at the draft Season 1

first season with the draft and it seems no one knew what to do. This drafted had almost 1/2 the 1st rounders go unsigned . Impact players seem to be bunched in the first few rounds and very few players were found outside the first 3 rounds.

1st round picks signed(out of possible): 18/32
Supplemental picks signed 12 /18

Top 5 Where they are today:

#1 Overall Larry Wilson- NY1 Never signed out of High School. Has Spent the last 7 years in and out of prison for Drug Charges.

#2 Ross Roosevelt – LR Never signed HS Prospect. Mom and Pop offered him a job bagging groceries at the Family Store.. the chance to become a cashier in 2-3 years was to much to pass up.

#3 Alex Halama- Columbus Never Signed. “I ain’t touch the bitch” 20/ life no possibility of parole.

#4 Clarance Patrick CIN Drafted Currently #1 Starter Career 3.78 ERA And 17 wins in 3 seasons

#5 Freddie Reynolds FLA Traded to CHI after season 4 3 time all-star and 1 time AL MVP says he is the premier pick in this draft
