2006 First-Year Player Draft selection order

The Kansas City Royals will have the first selection in the 2006 First-Year Player Draft, to be held via conference call on June 6-7 in New York City, Major League Baseball announced today.

The Los Angeles Dodgers (7th and 26th), the Washington Nationals (15th and 22nd) and the Boston Red Sox (27th and 28th) are the only clubs with multiple first-round selections.

The selection order is determined by the clubs' reverse order of finish at the close of the previous championship season. In addition, supplementary selections are given as compensation to those Clubs that lost Type A, B or C free agents.

The Draft will have 50 rounds and will conclude after all 30 teams have passed on a selection or after the final selection of the 50th round, whichever comes first.

MLB.com, the official Web site of Major League Baseball, will offer exclusive, live multi-media coverage of the entire 2006 First-Year Player Draft.
