Bobby Bonilla, who retired as a baseball player in 2001, hasn’t played for the New York Mets since 1999.

Yet Bonilla is among the highest-paid position players on the Mets’ payroll this year.  

The team paid the 57-year-old $1,193,248.20 on Wednesday — as it has each year over the past decade and will continue doing through 2035.

His payday, July 1, is known widely as “Bobby Bonilla Day.”
