Jack McKeon, Bill Beck will represent Marlins in the Draft

All 30 teams will send representatives to New York for the draft and Jack McKeon and Bill Beck are the Marlins.

 

Former Marlins manager Jack McKeon and Bill Beck, the club's former senior director of team travel, will represent the Marlins at the 2011 First-Year Player Draft next month in Seacaucus, N.J.

Each of the 30 teams' representatives -- ranging from Hall of Famers to longtime players to executives -- will be on hand at MLB Network's Studio 42 for the first round of the Draft.

Live coverage of the 2011 First-Year Player Draft begins with a one-hour preview show on Monday, June 6, at 6 p.m. ET on MLB.com and MLB Network, followed by the first round and supplemental compensation round.

A couple of fine choices. Don't know exactly what their duties will entail, but if cool baseball stories need to be told then Jack and Bill are the absolute right guys for the job.

However, if they are there to relay the first round pick of the Marlins, then it is really good they are sending Beck along with Jack. For all Jack's redeeming qualities, getting names right isn't exactly one of them. Bill, on the other hand, knows everybody's name.

The two of them could easily end up being the toast of the town.

We will have more on the First-Year player draft as it draws closer.
