Peter Sven Broberg (born March 2, 1950), is an American former Major League Baseball pitcher.


Broberg played in the major leagues from 1971-1978. He played for the Washington Senators/Texas Rangers, Milwaukee Brewers, Chicago Cubs, and Oakland Athletics. He was drafted in 1971, and went straight to the Major Leagues. He was the fifth player to go straight to the Major Leagues after being drafted without spending a day in the minors. Broberg was acquired by the expansion Seattle Mariners prior to the 1977 season and traded to the Chicago Cubs for a player to be named later (Jim Todd).

Personal life[edit]

Pete Broberg's father was Gus Broberg, a three-time All-American basketball standout for Dartmouth College from 1938 to 1941.
