Twitter Celebrates Bobby Bonilla Day


If you are any kind of sports fan, you've undoubtedly heard of Bobby Bonilla Day.

July 1st is the day, thanks to a restructured deal due to a buyout, the Mets deposit over $1 million into Bonilla's account. The organization deferred on a $5.9 million payment Bonilla was owed and will instead pay him in installments with an 8% interest rate over 25 years. 

The fact that Bonilla will continue to be paid until 2035, despite not having played for the Mets since 1999, makes this one of the greatest contracts of all-time.
