Jose Fernandez Death – Obituary :How did jose fernandez die has Died.
Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez died in a boating accident early Sunday morning. The league cancelled the team’s game today against the Atlanta Braves. Fernandez, initially scheduled to start on Sunday, got pushed back to Monday to allow Adam Conley to return from the disabled list to pitch. “The Miami Marlins organization is devastated by the tragic loss of José Fernández,” the Marlins explained in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this very difficult time.” The 24-year-old and two others died when their 32-foot boat hit a jetty, presumably at a high rate of speed, early this morning. Pictures show a damaged, overturned vessel partly submerged at the edge of a configuration of rocks jetting out into the ocean from the shore. The Coast Guard came upon the accident scene at 3:30 a.m. Sunday.
