The date of the last $1.2 million annual payment to Bobby Bonilla by the New York Mets. 

The Mets didn’t want to pay Bonilla the $5.9 million to buy out his contract in 1999. So they came up with the brilliant idea of paying him annually beginning in 2011 for 25 years. 

Yesterday was payment number 3.

Sources: @CBSSports and xfinity.comcast.net - the latter ranked it as only the 7th worse sports contract ever
