Rafa Martínez, father for the first time


Valencia Basket captain, Rafa Martínez, has become a father tonight by giving his partner to light in Valencia the first daughter of both, Paula Martinez Mercadal.


Paula has weighed 4,400 kg at birth. Both the baby and the mother are perfectly. From Valencia Basket we would like to congratulate them on this great news and welcome this new member of the Taronja family.


The Valencia Basket captain Rafa Martínez left this morning the team's expedition to Israel receiving a special permission from the Club to be able to attend the birth of the girl after presenting her partner this morning the first symptoms of the onset of labor.


The intention of the player was to meet with his teammates and the rest of the Taronja expedition in Israel after the happy news to help the team in this match, which finally will not be possible.
