Former Giants Minor League Player Garrett Broshius Leads a Lawsuit Against Major League Baseball for a Minimum Wage

There’s talent, and there’s luck, and when Garrett Broshuis was a high school senior in the tiny town of Advance, Missouri, he says the right people saw him throw the ball at the right time. That’s how he got a scholarship to the University of Missouri that was part athletic, and part academic. After a couple so-so seasons, he had what he calls “a magical year where everything came together,” and he was drafted in the 5th round of the 2004 Major League Baseball draft, early enough in the then-50 rounds that it came with a $160,000 signing bonus.
