The 2007 First-Year Player Draft was Major League Baseball's annual amateur draft of high school and college baseball players, and was held on June 7 and June 8, 2007. The first day session of the draft, including the first 25 rounds, was scheduled to be broadcast "live" from Orlando, Florida, on television for the first time [1], on ESPN2 from 2:00pm to 6:00pm Eastern Daylight Time (1800 - 2200 UTC).[2] Previously the conference call format draft was broadcast live, along with commentary, on both draft days exclusively from the MLB.com website as streaming audio. In total the draft featured 50 rounds and 1453 selections.[3]

Background

Ross Detwiler was the first 2007 draftee to play in the major leagues.[4]

Rick Porcello was the first player from the 2007 draft to be named as a starter at the outset of the season from Spring Training. He initially started the 2009 season in the 5th rotation spot for the Detroit Tigers but by mid-season was promoted to the 3rd starter.[5]
