Starling Marte thanks his late wife in emotional post after…


Despite the Oakland Athletics’ final game of the season-ending in a loss that eliminated them from playoff contention, outfielder Starling Marte had a wonderful message to share on Twitter.

Starling Marte, an outfielder for the Oakland Athletics, was heartbroken when his team’s season came to an end with a 7-6 loss to the Houston Astros.

Marte has had a challenging few years. His wife Noelia died abruptly from a heart attack in May 2020, when he was still playing for the Arizona Diamondbacks. During a global pandemic in which the state of baseball was frequently up in the air, he had to grieve the loss of his children’s mother.

Marte considered retiring following her untimely death for a while, and it took weeks of encouragement from his family, friends, and church to convince him to keep playing baseball.

Marte thanked his late wife and others who encouraged him to thrive through difficult times on Twitter over a year and a half after that tragic tragedy.

Marte’s note to Noelia stands out in a sea of nice thank you notes. The MLB All-Star has played for three different teams since her death. Marte was transferred from Arizona to the Miami Marlins in late August of 2020, just months after Noelia died. He played 28 games with the Marlins before being forced to sit out the postseason after a fastball shattered his hand.

Despite repeated injury setbacks, Marte signed with the Oakland Athletics in July 2021, hoping to continue one of the best seasons of his career. He did not get another chance in the playoffs, however, as the Athletics were eliminated from Wild Card contention only a few days ago.

Marte’s ability to stay optimistic and spread his thankfulness in the face of personal tragedy and a variety of injuries is very remarkable.
