1975 Major League Baseball Draft[edit]

The Dodgers drafted 33 players in the June draft and 11 in the January draft. Of those, six players would eventually play in the Major Leagues.

The top draft pick was shortstop Mark Bradley from Elizabethtown High School in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. He spent two seasons with the Dodgers as an outfielder in 1981–82 and a third season with the New York Mets and hit .204 in 113 at-bats.

The most successful draft pick was pitcher Dave Stewart, a 16th round pick out of St. Elizabeth High School in Oakland, California. He reached the Majors in 1978 with the Dodgers and played through 1995, primarily with the Oakland Athletics. He was 168-129 with a 3.95 ERA, was a 1989 All-Star, 3 time World Series Champion, a World Series MVP and 3 time League Championship Series MVP. Following his playing career he became a coach, an agent and a General Manager.
