CEB President Jan Esselman visited the Isle of Tenerife on invitation of founder and honorary President of the Tenerife Marlins from Puerto de la Cruz - Mr. Nestor Perez.
During his stay he had the chance to visit the President of Tenerife Mr. Carlos Alonso and the Tenerife Sports Minister Mrs. Cristo Perez.
During the game Tenerife Marlins against Baseball Navarra there was a meeting with Canary Islands Director of Sports Mr. Ramon Miranda and Puerto de la Cruz Sports Councillor Mr. Juan Carlos Marrero.
The two-day visit was very well organized by Nestor Perez and the Canary Islands Baseball Federation President Mr. Gerardo Orozco and Secretary General Mr. Jose Pena.
In all meetings the main item was to increase International games on Tenerife. The big advantage of Tenerife is that you can play baseball the whole year around. It is a great spot for spring training and youth tournaments. For high level of International games the field of the Marlins needs an upgrade for which the President of Tenerife Mr. Carlos Alonso offered his support.
