When Jim Hill retired in Green Valley about two decades ago, he was born again – as a jock.

Like the 350 members of the Born Again Jocks Association (BAJA), Hill took full advantage of the sports activities the program has to offer. For many retirees, joining BAJA becomes an act of rebirth for former athletes.
