2009 Draft Order

by on Oct.29, 2009 @ 3:53 pm, under NPB

I just realized I never posted the draft order, so here it is:

  1. Orix Buffaloes
  2. Yokohama Bay Stars
  3. Chiba Lotte Marines
  4. Hiroshima Carp
  5. Seibu Lions
  6. Hanshin Tigers
  7. Softbank Hawks
  8. Yakult Swallows
  9. Rakuten Eagles
  10. Chunichi Dragons
  11. Nippon Ham Fighters
  12. Yomiuri Giants

This, of course, doesn't really kick in until the second round.  And then it snakes back and forth until all teams have made their selections (so the Buffaloes pick first in the second round and the Giants pick first in the third round).
