Follow every pick of Draft's Day 3
Via range of devices, MLB.com offers new opportunities as picks are made
NEW YORK -- Ten rounds may be over, but 30 rounds of talent remain. Major League Baseball's First-Year Player Draft barreled through its second day Friday, and while more than 300 players have been taken so far, that doesn't erase the drama for the hundreds of players left on the board.
Will your team locate a superstar like Albert Pujols, famously acquired with a 13th-round Draft choice in 1999? Perhaps they can find a workhorse like Roy Oswalt, selected in the 23nd round in 1996? The drama will last for 30 rounds on Saturday, and you can catch it all on MLB.com
Rounds 11-40 will be streamed live on MLB.com on Saturday, starting at 1 p.m. And with technology comes options. The Draft, which began as a clandestine conference call, is now open to the public in a wide variety of ways that should appeal to fans of all ages.
MLB.com's coverage includes Draft Central, the Top 100 Draft Prospects list and Draft Tracker, a live interactive application that includes a searchable database of Draft-eligible players. You can also keep up to date by following @MLBDraft on Twitter. And get into the Draft conversation by tagging your tweets with #mlbdraft.
There is another key new MLB.com Twitter account to follow: @MLBDraftTracker. Every pick throughout the Draft will be tweeted there immediately after it has been announced.
Just as fans have grown familiar with MLB Advanced Media's delivery of live games over a constantly expanding array of mobile and connected devices, this Draft rides that wave of portability through which baseball is available virtually everywhere. The mobile-friendly version of the Draft Tracker is linked from the MLB.com mobile site and from the award-winning MLB.com At Bat 13 app, and there are also callouts on the Scoreboard and News sections when the Draft is live.
Here is a rundown of how to find what you are looking for:
iPhone At Bat: Draft Tracker is available in the "More" tab. There are also callouts to the Tracker on every Team page and in the News section of the app. The Tracker links to the live video when the Draft is live, and there are callouts on the MLB.TV page of the app.
