High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Rule 5 draft is a
Major League Baseball player draft that occurs each year in
December, at the annual Winter Meeting of general managers. The
Rule 5 draft aims to prevent teams from stockpiling too many young
players on their minor league affiliate teams when other teams
would be willing to have them play in the majors. The Rule 5 Draft
is named for its place in the The Official Professional Baseball
Rules Book. The June Rule 4 draft, known as simply "the draft,"
"amateur draft," or "first year player draft," is a distinctly
different process in which teams select high school and college
players. Prior to its current incarnation, from 1959 until the
creation of the Rule 4 draft in 1965, top first-year prospects of
teams were exposed to the rule 5 draft. This was in some ways an
outgrowth of the Bonus Rule that existed in 1946-50 and 1953-57.
