DuBourg baseball players playing again 44 years later

John Becvar, left, and Tom Long wore Bishop DuBourg hats with the uniforms they wear for games in the St. Louis Baseball Forever League. Becvar joked that he had to retire in order to find time to play ball.

John Becvar and Tom Long played baseball together 44 years ago at Bishop DuBourg High School, making varsity as sophomores.

They're at it again, not for the Catholic school in south St. Louis, but for the Jets in the St. Louis Baseball Forever League's over-60 division. Long has been in the league for three years and started recruiting old teammate Becvar at their 40th class reunion in 2013.
