Bonnie Youth Club keeps kids in the game

Diamonds are forever.

The Bonnie Youth Club (BYC), a year-round youth program which uses baseball as a vehicle to develop young players into successful adults, is celebrating its 71st year.

The club, which provides academic, athletic and recreational activities for ages 5 to 21, was started in 1949 in East Flatbush by Al Bonnie Sr. and his sons, Al Jr. and Joe. They had a moving and storage business and wanted to do something to give back to the community. So they created a baseball program, starting with one team. Today, there are 15 teams and 350 players.
