General Information
Description
Robert Averill Bonner is a former professional baseball player and currently a Baptist Missionary. He was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in the third round of the 1976 MLB Draft. He played parts of four seasons in Major League Baseball, from 1980 and 1983, all for the Baltimore Orioles, primarily as a shortstop. Beginning on the evening of April 18, 1981, he had 12 at-bats in the longest professional game ever played, 33 innings, between the Pawtucket Red Sox and the Rochester Red Wings. This epic International League contest is the subject of New York Times columnist Dan Barry's book "Bottom of the 33rd: Hope, Redemption, and Baseball's Longest Game". Bonner was called up by the Orioles' in May of 1981 to replace an injured Lenn Sakata. Orioles' general manager Hank Peters and Tom Giordano chose to call him up over Cal Ripken, Jr., the choice of Earl Weaver and the Orioles' coaching staff. Weaver remarked in an interview, "Bonner can play and our minor league people know what they're doing. But it seems to me if we need a guy like Ripken, who can hit the ball out of the park, he deserves a chance. Our main need is freakin' runs, and don't let anybody kid you." [More at Wikipedia]
