Notes

  • First MLB draft was in 1965.
  • All players were drafted in the primary June draft except where noted with the following:
    • JunSec = June Secondary Draft
    • Jan = January Draft
    • JanSec = January Secondary Draft
  • The following players are shown in OU's official draft lists on their website and in the most recent media guide I have access to (2022), but are not on the Letterwinners list or in previous media guides and therefore not in my database. I have also reached out to Baseball Reference since they have some of the same information. Research notes are in bold:
    • Michael Burns, OF, 1967, 41st round, 748th pick, Cleveland
    • Eddie Williams, P, 1968, 43rd round, 852nd pick, Baltimore - Played at Southwestern Oklahoma State
    • Dan Massari, 1B, 1976, 4th round, 81st pick, Cleveland - Played at OSU
    • Joe Price, P, 1977, 4th round, 102nd pick, Cincinnati - Played at OSU
    • Billy Irions, P, 1981, 1st round, 6th pick, Philadelphia - Played at Seminole (OK)
    • Kight Higgins, P, 1983, 3rd round, 50th pick, San Francisco - Played at Seminole (OK), then TCU (confirmed with player)
