1967 Baseball Draft

The 1967 Baseball Draft appears below and includes every player chosen in the June amateur draft, every round of the 1967 baseball draft, the overall pick, the team who drafted them, their position at that time, and where they were drafted from (high school / college name).

"The idea behind the draft was simple: 1) it gave the poorer teams—usually those lower in the standings—an equal chance to sign the top talent being produced in colleges and high schools; and 2) it cut down on payments of excessive bonuses to untried players. Even those who enthusiastically supported the free-agent draft had no idea that benefits from it would be reaped so quickly. Yet this season, less than two years later, several youngsters selected in the draft have stepped into the major leagues and have performed not just capably but in some cases spectacularly." - Sportswriter William Leggett in Sports Illustrated (May 01, 1967, 'Fresh Breezes From The Free-Agent Draft', Page 38)

1967 Baseball Draft


Did you know that there have been twenty-one players who have been drafted (since the baseball draft began in 1965) then went straight to the Major Leagues without first playing on a Minor League team?

Being selected with the first round, first pick, as the number one draft pick , is quite a baseball feat , but not every one of them has actually made it to the big leagues! Review those who did, those who didn't, which catcher was the first one ever selected first overall, which catcher was first that didn't make it and the first one that did, plus every other draft type (secondary drafts) along with information about which ones made it there as well.

The Baseball Almanac Draft Register is completely comprehensive and includes data on every single player ever drafted in baseball history, more than 65,000+ baseball draft picks spanning 40+ years of baseball draft history.
