Miami Marlins Pitcher José Fernández dies at 24. This news shocked the baseball world. A boating accident was the cause of death for this young, all-star pitcher.
Fernández and two other men were found dead after their 32-foot boat was discovered crashed at the entrance of Miami Harbor, said Fish and Wildlife Commission public information officer Lorenzo Veloz.
Coast Guard personnel on patrol noticed the vessel upside down on the north end shortly after 3:15 a.m.
It seemed that the boat hit the rocks at full speed and no alcohol and drugs were found on the boat, although investigators have not been able to get under the overturned wreckage and no autopsies have been done yet. None of the victims were wearing life vests.
We will not be making a jersey for Jose because we want to show our respect for this player and not make money off it.
Rest in peace.
