Since 1949, The Bonnie Youth Club , a year round youth program, has used baseball as a vehicle to teach young people ages 5 to 21- “Support, Service and Success."
Their clubhouse is in Flatbush Brooklyn and the boys hail from many parts of Brooklyn- Sunset Park, Canarsie, East New York, Crown Heights, Park Slope, Bushwick, East Flatbush, Flatbush, and even the Bronx.

The players will leave for Rockford, Illinois from Brooklyn, NY on Thursday, July 27, 2017. The World Series is July 28th-August 2nd.
Going to Illinois will be a great experience, however with this trip comes expenses. The cost of lodging, food and travel is estimated to be $1000 per child the reality is many of the families on the team simply can't afford for their sons to go. Your donation will also ensure that our committed coaches who are unpaid and give hours each week to the boys are able to get to Illinois to lead them to victory.
A donation of any amount is deeply appreciated. If you are a business wanting to make a large tax deductable donation to this team, please contact us to learn how!
Thanks for your support from the
10 year old Baseball team and coaches:
Anthony, Brandon, Cesar, Christian, Julian, Jayden, Jerrame, Kriston, Kymani, Lucas, Matthew, Mario,
Solomon, and Zyaire
Check back here for updates, we will let you know how our boys are doing during that weekend!
