Catcher Brett Nicholas was the highest Missouri Tiger taken during the MLB's First-Year Player Draft when the Texas Rangers selected him in the sixth round. First baseman Aaron Senne was taken in the 10th round by the Florida Marlins, and Nick Tepesch was taken in the 14th round by the Rangers. Senior infielder Michael Liberto was selected by the Royals in the 21st round.

Nicholas, a first-team All-Big 12 selection who just completed his junior year, was the MU leader in RBIs with 64 and second in home runs with 12. His .352 batting average was second on the team.

Senne, the Big 12 Co-Player of the Year, led the Tigers with 16 home runs and a .400 batting average. The senior was second in RBIs with 59.

Tepesch had a 6-6 record for MU with a 4.20 ERA in his junior year. Liberto was an All-Big 12 honorable mention.
