    1973 Major League Baseball Draft

    This was the ninth year of a Major League Baseball Draft. The Dodgers drafted 22 players in the June draft and nine in the January draft.

    The most notable player from this draft class was Outfielder Joe Simpson, who played from 1975-1983 but made his mark primarily as a broadcaster for the Atlanta Braves. The Dodgers first round pick was catcher Ted Farr of Shadle Park High School in Spokane, Washington. He played 339 games from 1973-1977 in the Dodgers farm system, hitting .235.
