    The 2003 season was a turbulent period as News Corporation (Fox) was seeking to sell the team. Nevertheless, the Dodgers fell just short of a Wild Card berth, winning 85 games, finishing second in the Western Division of the National League. The Dodgers pitching staff led baseball in earned run average, Eric Gagné became the first Dodger to earn the NL Cy Young award since 1988 as he converted all 55 of his save opportunities. Shawn Green set a new L.A. Dodger single season record with 49 doubles and Paul LoDuca had a 25 game hitting streak.

    Major League Baseball Draft

    Chad Billingsley

    The Dodgers selected 50 players in this draft. Of those, 12 of them would eventually play Major League baseball.

    The first round pick was right handed pitcher Chad Billingsley from Defiance High School in Defiance, Ohio. He was a 2009 All-Star and pitched eight seasons with the Dodgers with a 81-61 record and 3.65 ERA in 219 games (190 starts) before missing most of 2013 and all of 2014 with serious arm injuries.

    The sixth round pick, outfielder Matt Kemp from Midwest City High School would lead the National League in Home Runs and RBIs in 2011 as well as finishing second in the MVP vote that year.

    The draft class also included catcher A. J. Ellis (18th round), who would become the Dodgers starting catcher in 2012.
