Happy Birthday Bobby Bonilla!!!
Bobby Bonilla turns 49 years old today.
One of my favorite Marlins from the 1997 championship team, ‘Bobby Bo’ was a fan-friendly, and very funny member of the team. I remember Bobby coming into the local sporting goods store that I was working at years ago. It was 1997, but it was very early in the season before any of us thought that we had a chance to win the title. He joked and kidded with several of us, and was genuinely a nice guy. He signed a few autographs and had a few conversations with us prior to leaving.
It was a thrill for all of us to meet ‘Bobby Bo’ on that day 16 years ago, so today I want to again say ‘THANKS!!!!’ to the man that helped the Florida Marlins win the World Series in 1997 and helped make a few fans extra happy on that day when he stopped by and hung out for a few minutes!!!
