Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder, Starling Marte has announced that his wife Noelia has died due to a heart attack.
Marte made the announcement earlier this week on his social media accounts:
“Today I go through the great pain of making public the unfortunate death of my wife Noelia, due to a heart attack. It is a moment of indescribable pain. On behalf of my family, I am grateful for the expressions of esteem and solidarity in this difficult time.”
The sad news comes days after the couple’s daughter, Tiana, celebrated her fourth birthday.
In addition to Marte and Tiana, Noelia is survived by the couples’ two sons: Starling Jr. and Smerling.
