Default Marlin's Jose Fernandez Killed

The Miami Marlins have announced the death of ace right-hander Jose Fernandez.

The U.S. Coast Guard says Fernandez was one of three people killed in a boat crash off Miami Beach early Sunday.*

The Marlins did not immediately release details, other than releasing a statement confirming the death of one of the top pitchers in baseball.

In the statement, the Marlins say they are "devastated by the tragic loss of Jose Fernandez. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this very difficult time."

Wow. That is so stunning and sad. Only 24 years old and he was one of the brightest shining stars in MLB.

Hard to believe it's true. Awful news. He was an amazing talent and you could tell he had fun playing the game. Such an energetic guy. Unfortunately it reminds me so much of when the Angels lost Nick Adenhart in 2009. Thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family.

Apparently Fernandez invited several of his team mates to join him on the boat that night.

Good video in this article, showing the pre-game ceremony the team did to remember him.

The Marlins will also retire his #16 jersey.

Dee Gordon's leadoff home run last night brought tears to my eyes. Sports really are a brotherhood.
