July 3 - It has been a long road to get finished with our post season awards - We have spent countless hours pouring over nominations over the last 30 days - Our MAIN objective is to promote kids! And one last reminder that our teams do not reflect the ability of a kid to be a D1 player or a professional prospect or draftee - every award we do is based on how the kids did in the 2015 HS season - please do not contact me and ask me why so and so did not make it - I am not going to add them because you are mad - as I said, many hours have been spent in this process - We have two all state teams from all classes and an Ultimate 9 teams which represents the best 9 performances by position in the 2015 season - and remember, these things are nice, but in the grand scheme of things - there are a lot more important things your players, son's, nephews, etc could be know for IMHO - Coaches - I will attempt in the next few weeks to send out TBR Certificates to you for all these awards - and lastly, coaches I could not have done any of this without you guys! I cannot thank you enough - this was the best year I have ever had getting nominations and in some instances I found kids myself from local newspaper All-Area teams which have all been online in the last few weeks - I really do search for kids because I don't want to leave out deserving players - 2015 TBR All State Teams ...  2015 Ultimate 9 Team ...  I will begin working on the state record book in July - also if anyone see's a stat that a kid should be on the list - must be higher than the lowest amount on the stat -
June 30 - TBR 2 Way Team is posted - the top 2 way players in the state!
June 29 - Super Freshman/Sophomore Team is posted - continuing to work on All-State and should have the 2 Way Team posted by Wednesday -  hope to have all this wrapped up by the weekend - and will begin shooting emails with certificates next week!
May 30

With the draft coming up soon I thought I'd share some more of my research on MLB Draft with you - at the bottom of this page I have 65-69 and 70-79 broken down thru the entire drafts on percentage of players drafted who make it to the big leagues... after looking at the info - I decided to stick to the top 10 rounds of the 80-89 draft because the percentage of players who make it is very very small after 10 rounds and as you'll see in this breakdown the Top 10 rounds isn't that great either - What I will do with this is show the number of players drafted who make it to the MLB and the number who actually play at least 3 years ( I chose 500 games as the number/ 3years is actually 486 games) ... While 66% of first round picks in 80-89 made it to the big leagues, only 25% had a career that lasted 3 years or more ... that falls to 12% of 2nd round picks and steadily drops as you reach round 10...

Round Round 1 Round 2 Round 3 Round 4 Round 5 Round 6 Round 7 Round 8 Round 9 Round 10
Play at least 1 MLB game 205-310 66% 135-266 51% 102-260 39% 84-261 32% 73-261 28% 71-260 27% 63-260 24% 57-260  22% 62-260 24% 42-260 16%

MLB Draft History Part 1: The 60's

The MLB Draft started in 1965. Twenty teams drafted players and there were 10 rounds of the draft. Of the first 5 years of the draft, this draft had the most players reach the major leagues and play at least part of one year. 68 of 200 draftee's made the big leagues at some point of their career. 13 of the first round picks played in the show.  In '66, 51 of 200 players made it. In '67 only 43 players made the MLB, while in '68 the number bounced back up to a second overall with 57 players eventually playing major league baseball. The fifth year of the draft, 1969, saw 51 players make the MLB. Below is a breakdown by round of the players who played big league ball at some point in their career for at least part of a year.  These are statistics from the June Regular draft. In the beginning of the draft MLB had 4 drafts - January Regular, January Secondary, June Regular and June Secondary. The numbers reflect the players who signed when drafted. The player is credited in the year in which they signed to play - if they were drafted more than once, which some were - we didn't count the player twice. Also, the draft actually went more than 50 rounds, but I cut my research off at 50.  After the first round, the chances of becoming a MLB player fall off significantly... as I reveal the 70's, 80's, and 90's you will see the overwhelming evidence of this...

Notable draft picks from 60's
*- Bucky Dent **-Nolan Ryan ***-Ken Griffey ^- Bob Forsch ^^ Mike Marshall 37th round
In 1965 TN had 14 players drafted that were either from TN or played at a TN school. Of these, only one, Clyde Wright made the big leagues. Wright, who played at Carson-Newman College, was drafted in the 6th round, 107th overall. Wright pitched in 9 seasons of MLB, mainly for the California Angels.
TN only had 5 draftee's in 1966, none of which ever played MLB.
In '67, 18 players were drafted from TN schools. Two players, 2nd round pick David Sells of Sullivan South HS. Sells played parts of 5 seasons with California and the LA Dodgers. That same year, Sam Ewing of Overton HS was picked in the 45th round. Ewing played parts of 4 seasons with the Chicago White Sox and Toronto. Ewing was the lowest TN pick in the 60's to ever make the big leagues. Ewing left for pro ball in '71 when he was drafted in the January Secondary.
1968 saw three TN draft picks find big league diamonds. Wayne Garland (Cohn HS/5th round), Ross Grimsley (Frayser HS/8th) and Mike Willis (Hillsboro HS/25th round). TN also had a June Secondary draftee, Ed Goodson of ETSU, drafted as the third pick of the draft who played big league ball. Garland and Grimsley did not sign in '68. Both were drafted again in 1969 and signed.
In '69, other than Garland and Grimsley, TN had 19 players drafted total. None of these guys ever played an inning. Among the drafted was future Motlow State skipper, Don Rhoton.  The lowest ever draft pick to play in the big leagues from the 60's was drafted in 1969 - 75th round/1026 overall - Al Cowens... Cowens played 13 seasons with KC Royals, Detroit, California and Seattle. Interestingly enough, Nashville native, Butch Stinson was drafted from Cohn HS in the 75th round but did not sign.
