Major League Baseball conducts its annual amateur draft every June, selecting the very best high school and college players across the country to help bolster each team's roster for the future.
Draft experts and pundits work throughout the year to evaluate talent with the sole purpose of finding the best available players.
In many cases, MLB teams draft players according to team needs. But other teams may simply draft the best athlete left on the board.
The draft has also created a phenomenon in recent years with many publications and media sites who now conduct mock drafts.
Scouting experts give their best guess as to who teams will select in the top rounds, and many sites also hold contests for amateur wannabe draft experts. Winners who select the highest number of correct predictions receive prizes ranging from monetary gifts to season tickets or access to special events.
Here at Bleacher Report, we are not immune to creating mock drafts. However, this time we will add a special twist.
Here is a mock MLB draft where we will use the best players in baseball history to fill out the draft board. Only players who are currently in the Hall of Fame can be selected, and the 2013 MLB draft order will be used.
Players will be selected according to each team's current needs.
Let's take a look.
