Happy Bobby Bonilla Day to Mets supporters worldwide on July 1!
The New York Mets will present Bobby Bonilla, 59, with a check for
$1,193,248.20 on Friday and on July 1sts through the year 2035. Oftentimes,
Bonilla's annual salary exceeds that of some of the game's current rising
stars. The Mets agreed to pay the remaining $5.9 million on Bonilla's
contract in 2000. Instead of giving Bonilla the $5.9 million at the time, the
Mets decided to pay him about $1.2 million a year starting on July 1, 2011,
for 25 years, along with an agreed-upon 8 percent interest rate.
