It is with great sorrow to inform our Softball Federation Members of the untimely passing of Xavier Mateu
Xavier was the Secretary General of CEB.
It is a sad day for all European and World Baseball and Softball family , as Xavier was known for his passion in the sports we all hold dear to our hearts.
This year we have lost a few of our dear friends from both sports and we should always remember that the most important message that we learn from such tragedies is how fragile we really are and that our freindships is what makes our lives full when doing what we love best.

The European Softball Federation sends our condolences to Xavier's wife and daughter , to the CEB family , and all those who knew him.
