It’s been an emotional week. At 2:16 p.m. yesterday, the procession from Marlins Park to the Shrine of Our Lady of Charity began in Miami, Florida. A public viewing was held at St. Brendan’s Catholic Church. By all accounts, it was a fitting send off for a beloved player. 

Today will be the private funeral for family, friends, and teammates. Other MLB players, including Washington’s Gio Gonzalez, will be in attendance. 

Meanwhile, the entire baseball community – including those of us who are fans in far away places – will forever remember Jose Fernandez. As the days and months go by, we will continue to celebrate his life and his contributions to the game he loved.
