Miami Marlins Team Will All Wear No. 16 To Honor Jose Fernandez

Miami Marlins Team Will All Wear No. 16 To Honor Jose Fernandez

An All-Star pitcher for the Florida Marlins, Fernandez was one of three people killed in a boating crash off Miami Beach on Sunday, Sept. 25.

Elbow problems led to a round of Tommy John surgery at the end of 2015, but Fernandez showed his typical dominance again this year on a solid Marlins team, bringing him back to the All Star Game.

While the Marlins didn't play Sunday afternoon, they will face the Mets on Monday night.

The Marlins canceled their game with the Atlanta Braves Sunday.

The three were close friends and the boat was often seen in the waters where it eventually crashed sometime early Sunday morning.

The game will take place at Marlins Park at 7:10 p.m. ET against the New York Mets.

Cleveland teammates Steve Olin and Tim Crews were killed in a boating accident in Florida in 1993, and the game also reeled from the sudden deaths of major leaguers Darryl Kile, Nick Adenhart, Lyman Bostock and Cory Lidle in recent years.

Le Batard, whose parents are both Cuban immigrants, became emotional as he discussed how his mother enjoyed watching the Cuban American Fernandez pitch. Speed is suspected to be a factor and an investigation is ongoing.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, the Miami Marlins organization and all of the people he touched in his life".

So if the boat was going fast enough for the bow to rise out of the water, "then it's very possible that he could not see any of those rocks in front of him", Claus said.

"(Wilpon) came and talked to us in the trainer's room before the game", Cespedes said. Some teams hung a large piece of cloth with his name near the field.

The Miami Marlins superstar pitcher posted an Instagram pic of Mendoza in a bikini cradling her belly at the beach, seemingly revealing that the couple were expecting their first child together. "It's hard", said Marlins third baseman Martin Prado. "That's the beauty of Jose, and that's how I would remember him". "That's the joy that Jose played with, and the passion he felt about playing".

"When I think about Josie, it's going to be thinking about a little kid", said Mattingly, pausing repeatedly to compose himself. His number has also been painted on the pitching mound in Marlin's park in remembrance of the 24-year-old who lost his life, Fox Sports reports. This season, Fernandez struck out 12.49 batters per nine innings, the fifth-best average in the past 100 years.
