Bonilla’s listed bonus is not to paid all at once upfront. Part is deferred, and will continue to pay him or his heirs until the 22nd century.

8. Sebastian Wolcott, SS, Bahamas – Rangers

There have been nine Bahamian major leaguers. Update your spreadsheets.

Has there been a good player with a name like "Sebastian Wolcott"? I don't think that any of the Trevors come close.

Heathcliff Slocumb had his moments. So did Sterling Hitchcock (granted, sounds more like a nepo baby). But sure, Sebastian Wolcott sounds more like a cricketer ... which he probably has been if he's from Bahamas.

Ferguston Arthur Jenkins was pretty good for a Canadian.

Clive Walcott -- spelt with an a -- was West Indies' wicketkeeper and one of its best batsmen in the 1950s -- with Sir Frank Worrell and Everton Weekes formed the "3Ws".

Apologies to Fergie for accidentally adding a "t" to his first name.
   8. Mayor Blomberg Posted: January 15, 2023 at 09:03 PM (#6113318)
That's Sir Clyde, not Clive

Indeed, Sir Clyde Leopold Walcott KA, GCM, OBE, Sir Frank Mortimer Maglinne Worrell, and Sir Everton DeCourcy Weekes, KCMG, GCM, OBE

I know why it happened but it’s still such a bummer that West Indies isn’t a juggernaut anymore.
