Major League Baseball Draft
The Dodgers drafted 39 players in the June draft and 19 in the January draft. Of those, seven players would eventually play in the Major Leagues.
The Dodgers first round pick in the June draft was outfielder Michael White from Loudon High School in Loudon, Tennessee. In seven seasons of professional baseball (six of them in the Dodgers system), he hit .277 with 12 homers and 217 RBI. After his career he went on to get 2 master's degrees and start his own IT consulting company.
The most notable pick in the draft was infielder Dave Hansen, selected in the 2nd round out of Rowland High School in California. Hansen is also a distant cousin of Dodger Mike White. Hansen played in the Majors from 1990–2007, and was one of the more accomplished pinch hitters in league history. He hit .260 with 35 homers and 222 RBI. After his playing career he became a Major League hitting coach.
