First Player raft
COLUMBUS, 0 July 2MP-Minor League Baseball clubs have
approved their first player draft meeting in history. President George
M. Trautman of the National Association of Professional Baseball lea
gues (The Minors) said today.
The draft meeting will open Monday, Dec 5, at Baltimore, MdL,
two days before the start of the annual convention of the NAPBL.
Trautman said the new player selection procedure had been ap
proved by all 59 leagues in the association. It will affect clubs in class
AAA, AA, A, B and C leagues.
The American Association club
that finishes in last place this
year will initiate the new system.
This was determined today at
drawing held in Trautman's office.
The drafting will be by classifica
tion, starting with AAA leagues,
the highest All the last place clubs
will make their selections first. The
eighth place club in the American
association will be followed by the
eighth place club in the Interna
tional league, etc.
A sixth place club will lead off
the drafting in both class B and
class C because the Colonial and
Border leagues have only six clubs.
Whenever a league has less than
eight clubs, its last place team will
draft in the league's turn with the
eighth place teams from other lea
gues of the same classification.
The draft meeting for the minors
will replace the old system of hav
ing clubs make their selections on
designated dates by letter or wire
to the National association office.
"The approval of the draft meet
ing establishes a new era in the
selection of players by Minor Lea
gue clubs," Trautman said. "The
new plan will further stimulate
the merited advancement of play
ers in their chosen profession."
