As the winter men’s basketball season begins, the 50 guys all have new jerseys with the letter “J” for Javier.
One of their players and friend, Dr. Javier El-Bietar collapsed on the basketball court and died. The men he used to play with honored him on the opening night of winter league play.
For the last two years, El-Bietar played in the Tuesday night basketball league at First Baptist Church in Mason.
Pricebusters Promotions was honored to supply the shirts for the special event to remember “J”.
