Baseball player Bobby Bonilla:

It's Baseball player Bobby Bonilla Day! Why the Mets paid him 1.19 million today and every July 1st.

The calendar has turned into July 1, and that means one thing: it's time for Mets fans everywhere to wish each other a Happy Bobby Bonilla Day!  Why?

On Wednesday, 5-year-old Bobby Bonilla will collect a check for $ 1,193,248.20 from the New York Mets, as he has done and will do every July from July 2011 to July 2035.

Due to baseball's pay structure, Bonilla's annual payday is often much higher than the current stars of the game in a given year.

Thanks to the short season and the payroll for players in 2020, that list has grown even longer.

Then why will Bobby Bonilla get this salary?

In 2000, the Mets agreed to buy the remaining 9 5.9 million in the Bonilar deal.

However, instead of paying Bonilla $ 5.9 million at the time, the Mets agreed to make an annual payment for 25 years from July 1, 2011, with an 8% interest negotiated.

At the time, Mets' ownership was invested in a Barney Madoff account that promised a double-digit return, and the Mets were ready to make a significant profit by providing a Madoff account - but that didn't work out.

How rare is this system?

Bonilla last played for the Mets in 1999 and most recently for the Cardinals in 2001 at Majors, but will be awarded 2035 (when he turns 722).

Here are some more notable deferrals:

Bobby Bonilla (again): The second suspended-contract plan with the Mets and Orioles gives him 500 500,000 a year for 25 years. These payments began in 2004.

Brett Saberhagen: Saberhagen will receive 250 250,000 from the Mets for 25 years (payments also began in 2004; this was the inspiration for the Bonilar deal).

  • Max Scherzer - $ 28,105 million will be paid from citizens which will be paid by 2028.
  • Manny Ramaraj - Will raise a total of $ 24.2 million from the Red Sox by 2026.
  • Bruce Sutter - Signs a deal with Brave Forces with pending money before the 1985 season.

He had to pay $750,000 a year, then he would receive at least $1.12 million a year after retiring for 30 years.

The brave brothers will give it to him by 2020. He received the $ 50,000 figure in 1989 and 1990 because he retired two years on a six-year contract, so 30 years of his other instalments did not begin until 1991.

This is how 2020 compares to short-season to pay:

In addition to the young players who started earning half of Bonilar's $ 1.19 million a year, here are some notable players who will earn less than Bonilar's $ 1.19 million as there are only games to play in the 2020 season due to tight salaries, according to ESPN statistics and courtesy of Harrison Marr.

  • Dansby Swanson - $3.15 million before portrait pay. Will make about $1,165,500
  • Kenta Maeda - $3.125 million before protracted salary. About 15 will earn $1,156,250
  • Byron Brookston - $3.075 million before protracted salary. About 13 will earn $1,137,750
  • Mitch Moreland - $3 million before Proteard's salary. Will make about $1,110,000
  • Michael Wacha - $3 million before Protrade salary. Will make about 1, $1,110,000
  • Hunter Pence - $3 million before protracted salary. Will make about 1, 1,110,000
  • Michael Fulmer - $2.8 million before protracted salary. Will earn about $1,036,000
  • Tommy Kahnley - $2.65 million before protracted salary. Will cost approximately $980,500
  • Geo Ursella - $2.475 million before protracted salary. Will make an estimated $915,750
  • And these players are losing the closest amount to Bonilar's $1.19 million due to the short season:
  • Luke Jackson ($1.825 million before protracted salary). In 2020 it will earn about $675,250 and lose about $1,149,750
  • Pedro Strope ($1.825 million before Protred salary). Will earn about $ $675,250 and lose about $1,149,750
  • Tony Walters ($1.9 million before protracted salary). About 3 will earn $703,000 and lose about $1,197,000
