Former Baseball player Bobby "Bobby Bo" Bonilla has an estimated net worth of $23 Milllion. Bonilla was a Major Basket league player for 15 years, which significantly generated his net worth. Bonilla retired from the game in 2001. Bonilla was living every young boy's dream when he was snapped up by Pittsburgh Pirates scout, Syd Thrift. However that dream quickly turned into a nightmare when Bonilla broke his right leg during training. All was not lost, as Chicago White Sox signed up Bonilla for the Rule 5 Draft in 1986 - roughly a year after his unfortunate incident. Making a major league debut would be the icing on the cake for any budding player - but this was not the case for Bonilla. Sadly he was often harassed by veteran players. Thift resigned a rather fed-up Bonilla to Pittsburgh Pirates in where he remained for the next five years. Now a Pirates player, Bonilla became the third baseman - but this didn't work out, as he made 67 errors in two seasons. Bonilla then became a right field player- and he was a force to be reckoned with alongside Barry Bonds and Andy Van Slyke! The formidable trio helped the Pirates win two out of three straight NL East titles from 1990-1992. Bonilla then moved to New York Mets in 1992, signing a very lucrative 5 year contact of $29 million! His time at the Mets was very eventful. In his book Mets, The Worst Team Money Could Buy: The Collapse of The New York Mets (1992), Bonilla threatened sportswriter Bob Klapisch and would complain to the press about the unfairness about the game. Every player has the right to express his opinion- but Bonilla did it slap in the middle of the game. In 1995, Bonilla moved to Baltimore Orioles, where he helped put the team on the American League Championship Series the following year. Bonilla then moved to Florida Marlins, where he helped the team to win the 1997 World Series. Bonilla then spent one season with Los Angeles Dodgers. By 1999, Bonilla re-joined the Mets, a move that may be detrimental. Again Bonilla had a rough time with the Met. The team was not happy with his performance and Bonilla would often get into fiery feuds with manager Bobby Valentine. During the 1999 NCLS, Bonilla infamously played cards with teammate Rickey Henderson in the clubhouse while their team were losing to the Braves. The Mets have had enough.
Roberto Martin Antonio "Bobby" Bonilla ( /bo?'ni:j?/, born February 23, 1963 in The Bronx, New York) is a former player in Major League Baseball who played from 1986 to 2001.
Bonilla was signed out of high school by Pittsburgh Pirates scout Syd Thrift. His rise through the Pirates' farm system came to a halt during spring training in 1985 when he broke his right leg in a collision with teammate Bip Roberts. The White Sox then acquired him through the Rule 5 Draft. After making his major league debut with Chicago, Bonilla was regularly hazed by veteran players and Negro League Baseball star Buck O'Neil who put shaving cream in his shoes. Syd Thrift, then the Pirates' General Manager, reacquired the unhappy Bonilla in exchange for pitcher Jose DeLeon. Bonilla also played from 1984 to 1988 with the Mayaguez Indians of the Puerto Rican Winter League.
Bonilla became the Pirates' starting third baseman in 1987, but after committing 67 errors over his next two seasons, manager Jim Leyland moved him to right field. There he formed a formidable combination alongside stars Barry Bonds and Andy Van Slyke and helped propel the Pittsburgh Pirates to two of their three straight NL East titles from 1990 to 1992. During a 1989 incident, Bonilla was reportedly reprimanded for his assault on clubhouse attendant Gabe Thomas. He later claimed he was only upset because Thomas was allegedly told by Bonilla to remove the mesh from the seating at Three Rivers so his family could keep their distance from other fans. His family never made the trip from D.C.
In 1992, he was signed as a free agent by the New York Mets to a (then) very lucrative 5 year, $29 million contract ($48,028,456 today). But without his fellow Pirate stars around him, his offensive production dropped. His stay in New York would also be marred by a number of incidents, such as threatening sportswriter Bob Klapisch that he would "show him the Bronx" in response to his book on the 1992 Mets, The Worst Team Money Co
