I heard about the Bonnies when my brother inlaw played for them but did not believed what they stand for. But after my son started playing for the organization at the age of four years old and I got involved by helping coach more and more I realized what they really stand for. I started helping as much as I can to make a different and help them achieved their main goal which is for every players that come thru the organization optain the opportunity to attend some of the top schools in the country. I have seing so much success in the eight years that I have been involved, this baseball organization is like no other. I can not see my son playing for any other organization! I thank the Bonnies for giving me the chance to get incolved in this great mission.

The Bonnie Youth Club is a place where our youth can come and really learn the game of baseball at very high level. There have been many kids from the Bonnie Youth Club who are in great schools, colleges, and professions because of the positive impact of this youth club. There are numerous coaches and administrators who volunteer many hours of their time at no charge. The Bonnie Youth Club is a place that is truly needed in our community.

I have 2 sons that are a part of this wonderful organization. The Bonnie Youth Club has provided an opportunity for young boys to learn America's greatest pastime. Through baseball my sons have learned the importance of working hard, striving to be their best and other life lessons that will prepare them to be great men. I believe the opportunities that this organization provides for young people will carry them along way in life. My sons have been exposed to other cultures and other parts of the country thanks to their experiences with the Bonnie Youth Club. It's a great place to be.

My name is Alejandro Brown and I am currently an active player and coach with the Bonnie organization. The Bonnie organization not only saved my life but the lives of many inner city kids. They provide a structure for many of us. A good sense of directon not to mention a discipline that is needed to survive in the everyday world. So I would definitely recommend this organization to any parent if they want their kids to continue to become better young men and young women. Also have fun and win some championships in the process.

I was introduced to the Bonnie Youth Club some 25 years ago when my sons joined the club to learn to play baseball. They not only learned the game, they learned, teamwork, volunteerism, sportsmanship, how to be student athletes and they made lifelong friends. As a parent I not only bonded with other adults but also ended up becoming a mentor and volunteer myself. The club helps inner city youth travel, balance school and books and hone their skills on the ballfield. There are so many young people who are touched by the work being done by the Bonnie Youth Club that now there are generations of ballplayers who can call the Bonnies home. The club's longevity is a testament to the good work they do for our kids.

I've been involved with the Bonnie Youth Organization since I was 6 years old. As I get older I see more and more what a tremendous impact this organization has on the community it services. I live in California now and wish the Bonnie's would start a California branch.

Both of my sons were lucky enough to learn baseball with the Brooklyn Bonnies! We love this organization. They teach more than baseball ; they teach drive and determination, commitment , respect, team work, hard work and ultimately success! The Bonnie Youth Club is like a great big family. It's an experience every boy should have.

The Bonnie Youth Organization deserves to be recognized as a top notch nonprofit organization. I became apart of the Bonnie organization as a player back in 1997 and not only did the organization make me a better baseball player but the coaches I played for and the great people I was surrounded by all gave me a lot of valuable life tools that have carried me in my life to this day. The coaches and people who are involved with the organization all voluteer their time but helping the youth of brooklyn and creating a family atmosphere is what it's all about in the end.
