    Since I’m a draft maniac I have a draft question…

    Are players from the Industrial leagues eligible to be drafted every year once they are eligible for the first time?

    For example, Motoshi Oshiro from JX-Eneos, Akiyoshi from Panasonic, Oyama from Sega Samy etc.

      Yes. The exception is that player A was picked by team B the previous year, but A refused to go to B. B can’t pick A again the following year.

      I was wondering because the players I listed were talked about much all year (2012) and were not drafted… This time I only read about Akiyoshi…

      These guys don’t seem to have much velocity so that might explain their situations.

      Practically speaking, if a player is ignored in the first year of his eligibility, his chance of going pro is close to zero. Industrial leaguers usually don’t have any time to waste.

      Or he is so committed to his daytime work that he tells the scouts not to waste draft picks in advance. If he is expected to be a lower pick (unlike Otani this year, even though not an industrial leaguer), that kind of refusal won’t make a news story, I don’t think.

      Great infos!

      Since teams draft from 4 to 7 players every year, I guess they are more excited in going for young players who have high ceilings like Otani than 25 years old who might not want to sign (pretty understandable).

      That explains why I don’t see the same players in the Industrial league prospects this year. I figure that they have a safer economic life working with companies like Honda and playing a good caliber more for the sake of playing…

      Could it be possible that the players like Akiyoshi (Panasonic) are the ones who dream about the pros and are willing to wait for the draft year after year?

      Thanks, I appreciate the time you put into this.

      I am not well versed in individual cases in the industrial leagues. Just because a big name company has a baseball team doesn’t mean its players are treated as official employees with full benefits. They could be on short-term contracts. If that’s the case, going pro would be a better option.

      Sorry, I only know the general stuff.
