At 69 years old, this Friday night he died Osvaldo Batocletti, exjugador of the Tigers, key piece of League titles in the seasons 1977-78 and 1981-82.
The Argentine lost the battle with the Cancer that he had been supporting for almost a year.
Although he also played with the Lion, the Argentine achieved idol status with the Tigers because of his leadership and football qualities. He came to receive the nickname of “Tiger plus Tiger”, given the identification he achieved with the team.
We are very sad to inform you that our beloved Bato lost the battle against cancer and now rests in peace.
Thank you Profe for so many joys, for so many teachings and for showing us that you can be great on and off the field.
With you in the memory!#GraciasBato pic.twitter.com/QYxDEkpDEf
