  • NOTES: We have not yet matched the 2016 debuts to their draft into. We hope to do so soon.
    Please note that searches by state are not complete and not guaranteed to be accurate.
    Players are listed regardless of whether they signed or not.
    School names may change from year to year making it difficult to find all player drafted from a school.
    Please let us know if you find what you believe is an error.

    The 1965 draft had a major league and AAA section (rounds 1-3), a AA section (4-7) and A-ball sections (8+). Each team had one pick in rounds 1-7 (MLB, AAA, and AA picks). Starting with the 8th round teams received a pick for each A-ball team in their system in the reverse order of the affiliate finishes. Franchises that shared affiliates, alternated the picks round-by-round. This means that a franchise will have multiple picks in a "round". For presentation reasons here, we have re-labeled the rounds to be the number of the selection made by this franchise. This means that the Twins' 10th round pick could come after the Mets' 12th round pick.
