Baseball has countless stories of glory starring its elements. However, like everything in life, there are moments of tragedy that happen unexpectedly. Such is the case of Juan Antonio Marte Sánchez, former player of the now Cleveland Guardians in MLB, who is requesting social and economic support to be able to survive after an accident that suffered in 2019.

The journalist Héctor Gómez used his official Twitter account to share the story of Juan Antonio Marte Sánchez, a former player who belonged to the organization of the now Cleveland Guardians.

Marte Sánchez suffered an accident in 2019 that ended his career and that has left him bedridden throughout this time, thus complicating finding resources to support himself and his family.

The former player, who in 2010 played in the Dominican Summer League, requests economic and social support through a video in order to survive and support the family to which he belongs.

Héctor Gómez also shared the bank details of Juan Antonio Marte Sánchez for those who want to donate to this cause can do so.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
