Jeremy Bonderman

Athlete

Jeremy Bonderman's Major League Baseball career almost didn't exist because of his dyslexia.

In 2001, when Bonderman was just a junior in high school, he was drafted as the 26th overall pick in the MLB Draft by the Oakland Athletics.

Though he was a quick selection, the Athletics general manager was hesitant to sign a contract with Bonderman because he "didn't want to give $1.5 million to someone who can't read or write."
