European Baseball and Baseball in general lost a great man on Thursday. Xavier Mateu died this morning at the age of 50 following a heart attack. We express our deepest condolences to Xavier’s family and friends.
Not only was Xavier the Secretary General of CEB and the Technical Director of the Spanish Baseball and Softball Federation, but foremost and primary a dear friend. I will always remember his smile, his positive attitude, his encouragement and his devotion for the development of Baseball in Spain and worldwide.
Rest in Peace, Xavier. We will miss you!
