That total seems like a lot. How did it compare to other years? This number was much higher than any other year in the 1970s. Why 1978 I don't know. Maybe I will dig into this further in the future.
Broberg was mentioned before as one of the players with the least amount of wins to appear on a Kellogg's card. (Kellogg's Pitchers with the Least Career Wins)
Broberg went to Dartmouth College. His father was a standout basketball player there. I guess it should come as no surprise that he ended up being a lawyer (Broberg - lawyer and former pitcher). It also didn't surprise me that his father also was a lawyer.
