1975 Amateur Draft

(Redirected from June 1975 amateur draft)

The top pick in the 1975 Amateur draft, Danny Goodwin, is the only player to be drafted first overall twice. He was selected by the Chicago White Sox in the 1971 amateur draft but couldn't agree on a contract with the club. Instead he attended Southern University, and four years later, he was picked by the California Angels with the first selection in the draft.
