Bobby Bonilla banks $1.19M again; he hasn’t played in the MLB since 2001


NEW YORK (KDVR) — Imagine not working your job for 20 years and still getting paid. That’s exactly what Bobby Bonilla has done.

Bonilla retired from Major League Baseball in 2001. 20 years later, he’s still banking $1.19 million every July 1.

His contract with the New York Mets is for $1,193,248.20 each year until 2035. However, there is growing speculation that the Mets might pay off Bonilla’s contract this year.

In a tweet sent out on Wednesday night, the Mets said, “You know what tomorrow is. We have a BIG announcement.” The tweet included a GIF of Bonilla.
