Each entry will consist of a virtual ball with an owner’s name affixed to it.  All 92 virtual balls will be placed into a software program (DraftPickLottery.com) and three virtual balls will be selected electronically – one for the first, second and third overall picks.  The fourth pick will be awarded to the non-lottery-winning owner with the worst record.  The remaining order will be determined by the traditional method, by reversing the previous year’s final standings.  As has been the case in prior years, the previous year’s champion selects twelfth and the runner-up selects eleventh.
