ROCHESTER, MINNESOTA  ~~~~~~~   July 14, 2021  (LSN)   The 2021 Major League First-Year Player Draft was held July 11 through July 13. This year’s draft was twenty rounds. The draft last season was shortened to five rounds due to the pandemic after it had been forty rounds in the past

Of the one hundred players drafted twelve of them had played in the Northwoods League Major League Dreams Showcase. The Major League Dreams Showcase brings together 100 of the Northwoods League’s top prospects to form four teams for a day of scouting workouts and double-header action. Played in front of Major League scouts, the Showcase provides an invaluable platform for players looking to one day make it into the professional ranks. Participating players are hand-selected by a panel of MLB scouts, distinguishing this event from the more traditional All-Star Game format that features representatives from every team.
