NEW YORK (AP) -The Major League Baseball draft next month will be televised for the first time, with four hours of live coverage on ESPN2.
Tampa Bay will have the first pick in the June 7 draft in Orlando, Fla., and the cable network will broadcast each team's first-round choice. The draft will last for two days and 50 rounds.
``I am glad that this agreement will give fans access to see this critical function of an organization's development,'' commissioner Bud Selig said. ``This is an idea whose time has come.''
San Francisco will have three first-round picks, and Toronto and Texas will have two each.
