Boone, Corrales to represent Nats at Draft
PHILADELPHIA -- Bob Boone and Pat Corrales will represent the Nationals -- who have the 16th overall pick -- during the 2012 First-Year Player Draft on June 4.

Boone, who was one of the best defensive catchers in the 1970s and '80s, is an assistant general manager for the club. Boone was drafted by the Phillies in the sixth round of the 1969 First-Year Player Draft.

Corrales, who has spent the past 50 years as a Major League catcher, manager and coach, is an advisor to the Nationals.

Commissioner Bud Selig will announce all of the first-round picks, and for teams with compensation-round picks, the club rep(s) will announce those.

The annual First-Year Player Draft takes place this year from June 4-6, beginning with the first round and Comp Round A on Monday, June 4, at 7 p.m. ET. The first night of the event will be broadcast live on MLB Network and streamed live on MLB.com. Rounds 2-40 will also be streamed live on MLB.com on June 5-6.

MLB.com's coverage, sponsored by CenturyLink, will include Draft Central, the Top 100 Draft Prospects list, Draft Tracker, a live interactive application that includes a searchable database of every Draft-eligible player, and Draft Caster.
