MLB Draft, Just Around The Corner!

I'm pretty excited about the upcoming MLB Draft which will be held on June 6, 2013.

In the past I haven't paid much attention to the draft a side from who the Mets drafted, but this year my interest is peaked as I'll be attending more New York-Penn League games this summer.

The draft will supply a majority of players on New York-Penn League rosters.

Many of the players who play in the New York-Penn League will never make it to the major leagues, but there are a few who do. It will be interesting to see who the big prospects are that land in Troy, Brooklyn, and Burlington this summer. 

Last season, I got a chance to see Mets 2011 1st round pick Brandon Nimmo play for the Brooklyn Cyclones in Vermont against the Vermont Lake Monsters.

It's cool to see these players at such a young age and watch them develop over time. Also, you never know which players will end up being a star in the major leagues one day.
