SEACAUCUS, NJ -- Millville centerfielder Mike Trout has the best seat in the house for Major League Baseball's First-Year Player Draft.
Trout and his family are sitting in a replica dugout in Studio 42 at the MLB Network, where the draft is being staged. The first round is being televised live on MLB Network. A shot of Trout and his family was just shown. There will probably be a lot of reaction shots of the family until Trout is drafted.
Teams have four minutes in the opening round to make their selection.
Trout is projected to be selected in the first round and he earlier admitted to being a little nervous. This season Trout set a single-season South Jersey record with 18 home runs.
The Phillies don't have a pick until the 75th selection.
As expected San Diego State righthander Stephen Strasburg was selected first in the draft by the Washington Nationals.
