MLB Draft Day is here and growing bigger

Major
League Baseball’s First-Year Player Draft was practically covert until MLB.com
and the Internet age transformed it into an annual happening that sets traffic
records each year.

One look
inside the event’s new epicenter here at The Milk House facility inside
Disney’s Wide World of Sports complex, and you can see why it says “Where
Dreams Come True” on that main Disney entry sign for millions of tourists.
The
largest Draft in sports by player volume is about to get a whole lot bigger,
another stunning reminder of how the national pastime’s popularity has surged
even higher in these days of record-breaking attendance and unprecedented
pennant-race participation. The Draft starts at 2 p.m. ET today, and ESPN2 will
air today’s first round. MLB.com will simulcast ESPN2’s coverage, part of its
live mulitimedia coverage of the entire draft from first pick to last.
