(Until 2014)
  1. League that won the All-Star Game in the conference year

History of the draft system

Transition of draft system

  • 1964 , At the Pacific League Owners RoundtableNishitetsu LionsPresident/Matajiro Nishi NFLProposed to introduce a draft system that follows.
  • 1965 The first draft meeting was held on November 11th.Submit a list that ranks the players (up to 17 players) that each team wants to acquire in advance, and if the first place in the list overlaps, a lottery will be held, and the missing team will replace the second player in the list. It was done in a unique way to determine the first draft player by winning the game.This is only the first draft nomination, the second and lower drafts are normalWeber methodAnd reverse Weber nominations were made alternately.
  • 1966 IssocietyA high school studentOut ofNational bodyThe first draft of September for those who do not participate inUniversityThe second draft of November was held for the national polity participants.
  • 1967 In addition, the system for submitting the list up to that point was abolished, and players will be nominated in order based on the order of nomination decided in advance by lottery.At this time, odd-numbered nominations are made in descending order, and even-numbered nominations are made in ascending order.As a result, the priority of the lower teams, which had been maintained by the Weber method in the second place nomination, disappeared.
  • 1978 In addition, the system has been renewed, and a method has been adopted in which all teams appoint one player at a time at the same time and draw lots when there are duplicates. The nomination for the 1st place is similar to the one adopted from 1965 to 1966, except that it continues after the 2nd place.Only the teams that did not win the lottery are eligible, but by appointing replacement players by the Weber method for odd-numbered places and the reverse Weber method for even-numbered places, the lower teams have been given a slight preferential treatment.
  • 1991 From then on, the 4th place was changed to the same as before, and the nominations after the 5th place were changed to alternate between the Weber method and the reverse Weber method.From this year, out-of-draft enrollment was abolished.
  • 1993 , So that influential players can join the desired teamReverse nomination systemWas introduced.For new players other than high school students, the player nominates a team that wants to join (two or more teams are possible, but there was no such case), and the nominated team nominates this player at the draft meeting. By doing so, you can get priority.The reverse nomination is applied only to the 2st and 1nd place players, and after the 2rd place, the Weber method and the reverse Weber method will be alternated.
  • 2001 , Instead of reverse nomination,Free acquisition frameWas provided.The slot itself is almost the same as the reverse nomination, and the only change is that the order of nominations when using one of these slots has been unified (previously if there was only one reverse nominee). However, I was able to participate in the first round of nominations, see "Draft system from 1 to 1" below for details).Due to the use / non-use of the free acquisition frame, it will be possible to make a round that cannot be nominated, and from this year to 1, the "round" will be used instead of the "rank".
  • 2005 From, the free acquisition frame is "Hope to joinIn October, the draft was for high school students, and in November, the draft was for university students and working adults. (For details, see "10-11." Draft system ").Also, only in 2, a training player draft was held in December to select training players, but2006 From now on, this will be done following a normal draft meeting.For more information about trained playersTraining player systemSee section.
  • 2007 ToSeibu Lions Slush FundThe debate about the abolition of the desired enrollment quota was raised due to concerns that it would become a hotbed for slush funds, and the desired enrollment quota was abolished from this year's meeting.
  • 2008 As a result, the high school student selection meeting and the university / worker selection meeting were reintegrated and held together.

Draft system from 2001 to 2004

Free acquisition frame
  • Before the draft meeting, up to 2 players from each team can be freely acquired as contracted unofficial players.
  • It is not possible to acquire high school students or similar players.
  • It is not obligatory to use it, and even if it is used, each team is free to decide whether to acquire only one person or the upper limit of two people.
  • Athletes acquired through the free quota will not be nominated by other teams in the normal nomination of players at draft meetings.
Normal player nomination
  • Each team declares the end of the selection when there are no more players who want to win, and cannot participate in the nomination after that.
  • In the first round, only the teams that did not use the free acquisition quota can participate, and all participating teams will nominate players at the same time, and if the nominations overlap, a lottery will be held.Only the teams that did not win the lottery will repeat this process to determine the designated players.
  • In the second round, only the team that used one free acquisition slot can participate, and the designated player will be confirmed by the Weber method.
  • In the third round, only teams that did not use the free acquisition quota can participate, and the designated players will be confirmed by the Weber method.
  • From the 4th round onward, the reverse Weber method and the Weber method will be alternated, and this will continue until the total number of nominated players including the free acquisition slot reaches 120 for all teams or all teams declare the end of selection.

He insisted that the team that sought a method closer to free competition and the system of free acquisition quota that brings free competition halfway into the draft system would be a hotbed of slush funds, and abolished the free acquisition quota and completelyWeber methodThe team, which claims that there will be no slush funds in the draft, insisted on reforming the system according to their wishes.

The discussion began with the aim of resolving the slush fund problem, but each team argued for a system that would allow them to acquire influential players, and there was no consensus.As a compromise, on a trial basis2005 2006 For the two years, the name of the free acquisition frameHope to joinAfter changing to, we held a draft meeting with the number of slots reduced from 2 to 1.

Institutional problems

Discussion of freedom to choose a team

In the current designated bidding and Weber methods, there is almost no freedom of choice for the team on the player side, so there are various opinions related to concerns about the outflow of players overseas.

  • Position to respect the freedom of the players
    • Opinions concerned about the outflow of students and adult players overseas due to difficulty in joining the desired team[6].
    • Opinion that it is special about not being able to hear any hope about occupation or workplace in comparison with other industries[7].
    • The Constitution of JapanGuaranteeFreedom of choiceOpinion that it may be an infringement.
    • Opinion such as "I'm sorry I couldn't go to the team of hope" as an emotional theory.
  • A position that prioritizes the balance of forces for the development of the professional baseball world over the freedom of players
    • Opinion that a Weber system should be introduced that will lead to a force balance to activate official games as well as prevent illegal draft activities.[8].
    • Opinions that the U.S. ball world wants mainly players who have left a track record in the Japanese ball world in response to concerns about the outflow of promising players overseas[9].
    • Opinion that the insistence on the part of the nominee that "only the team of hope will join" is contrary to the purpose of the draft[10].
    • A company (a general company, etc.)Japan Baseball Organization) ・ Opinion that the idea of ​​department (baseball team) may not infringe on freedom of choice of occupation.
  • Position to respect the freedom of active players
    • Opinion that if we are discussing the freedom of choice of a player's team, we should expand the FA system instead of discussing only the draft system.[11].
    • Opinion that the transfer of active players due to the circumstances of the team such as trade and FA compensation should be discussed in the same way.
There is a strong request from the players' association for the expansion of FA and posting.[12] However, neither the team side nor the player association side has reviewed the unified contract, and there is no discussion that players should be allowed to choose their team even when transferring players due to the circumstances of the team.

Concerns about avoiding nominations from other than specific baseball teams that hide their aspirations for Major League Baseball

Professional baseball aspiration reportEven players who can be nominated at the Professional Baseball Draft Conference that submittedMajor LeagueIf you express your desire to play in, the nomination may be postponed with respect for the player's will.However, there is a concern that if there is a player that the team that is taking advantage of this wants to acquire, there is a concern that the method of making the player express his desire for Major League Baseball and avoiding the nomination from other baseball teams will be used as a "loophole". There is an opinion that rules should be developed assuming this case.[13][14].

Negotiation right correction

Yomiuri GiantsTsuneo HoriuchiIt turned out that the director was also drawing a lottery, and it was corrected that the right to negotiate with Tsujiuchi was acquired by the Yomiuri Giants and the right to negotiate with Yang was acquired by the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters.These are due to the fact that the NPB side believed in the director's facial expressions and claims without confirming the actual lottery and announced it as a lottery result as it was.
