The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Marc Lawrence, – When the New York Mets released Bobby Bonilla in 2000, he was owed about $6 million. The team struck a deal to defer the millions of dollars they owed Bonilla, with payments starting in 2011. Those payments of $1,193,248.20 happen on July 1 every year until 2035, And to his benefit those payments make the deal worth $30 million. Hence, the name: Bobby Bonilla Day.
