San Francisco Giants named in wage lawsuit
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The San Francisco Giants are defendants in a lawsuit filed by former minor league players who claim their wages were unlawfully low.
Former San Jose Giants player Oliver Odle is among the claimants. Other players filing suit are, Aaron Senne and Michael Liberto of the Florida Marlins.
The players say teams often paid less than $7,500 per year.
Neither the Giants nor Major League Baseball responded to ABC7 News' requests for comment. But, MLB could argue that minor league players voluntarily agree to the terms of their employment by signing a contract.
