Marlins Star José Fernández Killed In Boating Accident

The baseball world got chilling news on Sunday morning as young pitching star José Fernández was killed in a boating accident in Miami. The 24-year old was having another stellar season—going 16-8 with a 2.86 ERA. He shot onto the scene in 2013 as Rookie Of The Year in the NL, and was 38-17 in four seasons with the Marlins. Reportedly, the boat he was in (with two others) was traveling at high speeds when it hit a jetty at full impact and overturned. Red Sox star David Ortiz offered this thought in a Tweet today, "I don't have the words to describe the pain feel for the loss of my friend Jose. Goodbye, my friend."
