How in the world will come to an agreement in the house? You have the right agent.
Bobby Bonilla had agent Dennis Gilbert to negotiations with The Mets, when he was brought in on a record-large contract in 1991, which would raise Bonilla 192 million over the next five years.
A contract that ended up biting them in the ass up to the year 2035, when Bonilla reaches the age of 72.
He was a big name in the sport at the beginning of the 1990s, and the teams competed for a contract with him.
Gilbert had before the secured other sports and movie stars to good contracts. Among other things, insurance for Michael Jackson and Robin Williams. He had to make sure the right contract for Bonilla.
- What is a ballplayer trained for in the pension? It is like to be a king - you are not trained to be anything else, recalling the Dennis Gilbert.
- In bobby's case I would just ensure me that he was sure the rest of his days, he adds to the american media.
It must be said, have succeeded.
The then-37-year-old baseball player still pay for his last season, when he in the year 2000 was sent from The Mets.
at the same time, had the investor Bernie Madoff shot a lot of money in the club, and it had the Mets going to make use of.
instead of paying the 5.9 million dollars, or 39 million dollars, on the spot, assessed the Mets, that they could save money by instead to grant Bonilla a percentage of the investment from Bernie Madoff. It was to run from 2011 to 2035, just to have Bonillas, and gilbert's, wishes about the future met.
madoff's investments, however, turned out to be a hoax of the dimensions and to the billions of dollars.
So to make a long story short, so is the Mets are required to pay Bonilla $ 30 million, equivalent to 198 million kroner in the form of an annual payment of eight million dollars until 2035.
Payment is made each year 1. July, which, of course, in the Baseball world is known as 'Bobby Bonilla Day'.
