Tragic news out of Florida. Jose Fernandez, a 24 year old pitching prodigy and 2x All-Star has been killed in an apparent boating accident.

Here is video of Fernandez’s grandmother seeing him pitch for the first time.

Fernandez defected from the communist slave state of Cuba in order to fullfill his dream of playing professional baseball. He was drafted in the first round of the 2011 MLB draft and quickly rose up the ranks of the Miami Marlins organization. In his first major league season he placed 3rd in the National League Cy Young voting. Such a tragedy. A young promising life cut short. Please Pray.
