Professional sports and drafts?

most drafts for professional sports teams happen at the end of the season(NHL, NBA, NFL,WNBA,) so why does the MLB have their draft in the middle of the season?

    College and high school players are now eligible, their seasons are almost over, they can be drafted, signed to a contract, and assigned to a minor league team. The season is in full swing, there is no reason to wait for next year. The NFL had their draft last month, not when their season ended.
