Been consumed by this horrible story. This guy had everything, and in a very short amount of time was going to make 100s of millions of dollars. He had just announced a week ago that his wife was pregnant. Just so tragic. The Marlins had decided to push Jose Fernandez’s next start back, so that he would be home, and to try and effect the pennant race. The move ended up effecting the 24 year old’s life. Just INCREDIBLE.
Hard not to be moved by this. Gordon could barely keep it together as he was crossing home plate.
An amazing and moving tribute to the young athlete.
