The new head of the National Sports Commission (CONADE) will act as AMLO's representative

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) will now be the new Global Ambassador of Baseball in the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC), though he will be represented by Ana Gabriela Guevara, head of the National Sports Commission (CONADE).

Yesterday, President López Obrador uploaded a video on his Twitter account showing a private meeting with Riccardo Fraccari, chairman of the WBSC.

“We will defend this sport, and we will accept the role that has been assigned to us. I will be the global ambassador of baseball, and ‘Anita’ (Ana Gabriela Guevara) will act as my representative because I don’t travel much,” said the President between laughs.

Fraccari also gave him a Federation medal and showed him the trophy that will be given to one of the 12 countries participating in the Pre-Olympic tournament that will be held in Guadalajara, Jalisco this year.
