228. MLB vs. Minor League Baseball
12.18.2019 - By Sports With Friends
At the 2019 Winter Meetings, MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred and representatives from MILB took jabs at each other. At odds is MLB's reported proposal to eliminate potentially up to 42 minor league franchises. The public dialogue escalated and there were rumors that MLB wants no agreement with the minor leagues.
This week Garrett Broshuis, a lawyer with Korein Tillery's St. Louis office, represents dozens of former minor league baseball players in a wage-and-hour action challenging the pay scheme for minor leaguers. He joined the show to give insight into what is going on, why this is going on, and offers suggestions of the impact it will have both on players but also small towns across the United States.
