April 18, 1959

Four players have been drafted in the first round out of Creighton University—Dennis Rasmussen, Alan Benes, Dan Smith, and Scott Stahoviak. None of them ever appeared in an All-Star Game, but one pitcher who predates the draft appeared on nine All-Star rosters, and in 1981 Bob Gibson became the first and, so far, only Creighton Bluejay inducted in the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
