On display: Lottery Box used in NPB amateur draft
The 2008 first-year player draft, which originally started in 1965, was held on October 30, with bid/lottery system, adopting a blanket nomination from high schools, colleges, and corporate clubs for the first time in four years.
This lottery box was used four times when three players were nominated by two of the 12 teams in the first bid and one in the second.
