In less than one month, the San Diego Padres and the rest of Major League Baseball will come together for the annual June Amateur Draft.

As one of the younger teams in MLB, the draft predates the Padres. The first official draft took place in 1965; the Padres’ first season was 1969. However, despite being one of the newer teams, the Padres are tied with the New York Mets for most first-overall pics, with both teams drafting first five times in their franchise histories.

Between July 17-19, MLB teams will select the top players who will hopefully shape their future in meaningful ways. Before then, look back at every first-round pick in Padres history:
