June 4, 1975: The Reds first round draft woes continue with the selection of OF Evansville, Indiana high-schooler Tony Moretto in the first round of the amateur draft.

Moretto peaked at Class AA. The Reds picked up a little pitching help with Frank Pastore in the second round, Paul Moskau in the third, and Scott Brown in the fourth.
