1976 Major League Baseball draftEdit

The Dodgers drafted 41 players in the June draft and 14 in the January draft. Of those, ten players would eventually play in the Major Leagues.

The top draft pick in the June draft was catcher Mike Scioscia from Springfield High School in Pennsylvania. He would be the Dodgers starting catcher from 1980–1992 and was a 2-time All-Star and 2-time World Series Champion with the Dodgers. After his playing career ended he became the manager of the Anaheim Angels and would win another World Series as their manager in 2002.
