BALTIMORE -- The Orioles will send former All-Star Al Bumbry as their club representative in the 2010 First-Year Player Draft, which begins on June 7.
Bumbry was voted the American League Rookie of the Year in 1973 with the Orioles and was elected to the AL All-Star team in 1980. He was drafted by Baltimore in the 11th round of the '72 Draft, and he played with the Orioles until '84, finishing his Major League career with the San Diego Padres.
Over his 14-year career, Bumbry hit 54 home runs and knocked in 402. An Orioles Hall of Famer, Bumbry accumulated 1,422 hits and put together a career batting average of .281. His son, Steven, was selected by the Orioles in the 12th-round of last year's Draft.
This year, the Orioles have the third overall pick in the Draft.
