NPB College/Industrial Draft List

I'm sorry, I needed something to take my mind off Ogasawara signing with the Giants, because I can't deal with that right now. I just can't.

So I went and translated the full lists of the college/industrial draft. Hopefully it'll be useful to someone.

I worked with the Sankei Sports list as my master list (so all height/weight info is from there) and then did web searches to figure out various other things, mostly hometown prefectures. There's like three where I took the hometown of their high school since I couldn't find anything else (and those are denoted with a dash afterwards), I'm sure I can find out as details come in. I also used the industry/college draft issue of Shukan Baseball for some info.

Players with pages linked are just because I ended up looking them up to find out info in the first place so figured I might as well save that info.

I've got some thoughts about how some teams did their drafting (notably Hiroshima taking all industry-league older players), but I'm pretty mentally shot.

I'm thinking of trying to write up how the draft works, too, at some point. It's incredibly convoluted, but I think I finally understand the whole pick-skipping thing, at least. You'll notice in most of these there's a K and then a 3 -- because the K is the pre-signed kibouwaki player, then almost every team except Rakuten didn't have a pick until the technical "third round", due to not skipping the first round of the high school draft and due to signing a kibouwaki outside the draft.
