Lonnie was born in Bronx, NY to Betty Clark and Billy Wright on January 14, 1983. He attended Taft High School in the Bronx and graduated in 2002. After high school he got a job working for the New York Yankees. He loved the Yankees and was a diehard Fan! He worked there for 15 years until he couldn’t do it any longer. He loved sports!
