Jose Fernandez

The baseball world woke up to shock and sadness this morning when the news broke that Jose Fernandez had been killed in a boating accident. Fernandez, just 24 years old was a star on the rise. According to mlb.com, his last outing on September 20th was one of the best of his career. He pitched 8 shut out innings and struck out 12 in a 1-0 victory over the Nationals. Fernanadez pitched in the All Star game this year, and was crowned Rookie of the Year in 2013.  He was a spectacular talent, I always enjoyed watching him pitch.  Fernandez was one of those athletes that you watched in awe trying to figure out how he made it look so easy. Needless to say, this is a devastating loss to the Marlins, his family and friends, and major league baseball.
