Bobby Bonilla, New York Mets
Most people celebrate the Fourth of July with some fireworks and hotdogs. Bobby Bonilla celebrates it by cashing a check worth $1,193,248.20. That's because, like clockwork, every July the former Met receives an annual payout from an early 00s deal concocted by a life insurance agent (you read that right).Y ep, even though Bonilla retired from baseball in 2003 and hasn't played for the Mets since the 1999 season, the slugger has the good fortune to still be a part of team payroll until, drumroll please... 2035. And you thought Citi Field's current issues with their bullpen was a headache.
