(CNN)Happy Bobby Bonilla Day! If you don't know who that is, allow us to introduce you to your new professional and financial role model.
This guy hasn't played in the MLB since 2001. But one team is paying him $1.2 million a year until 2035
Bobby Bonilla is a retired MLB player who last took the field in 2001, but, 20 years later, is still getting paid $1.2 million a year by the New York Mets. In fact, he'll get paid $1,193,248.20 a year every year until 2035, when Bonilla is 72 entire years old.
At that point, the final sum will be $29.8 million paid for a sport Bonilla will not have played professionally for 34 years.
The payout of the most clutch retirement plan in history happens ever year on July 1, a day when the baseball world stops to chuckle at what is either one of the worst or best sports contracts in history, depending on whether or not you're Bobby Bonilla.
