Marlins Honor Fernandez
The Miami Marlins are finding a way to play after their star pitcher, Jose Fernandez, was killed in a boating accident early Sunday morning.
Marlins slugger Giancarlo led a pregame tribute for Fernandez. Then in the bottom of the first, Marlins infielder Dee Gordon came up to the plate wearing Jose Fernandez’ batting helmet and took the first pitch from the right-handed batter’s box, in honor of Fernandez. With his regular helmet, and batting from the left side, Gordon then launched a home run into the upper deck. It was Gordon’s first home run of the season.
Gordon was so overcome with emotion, he could barely make it back into the dugout. The Marlins went on to beat the Mets 7-3 on an emotional night in Miami.
