Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez and three others have died in a boating accident early Sunday (Sept. 25) morning. In wake of the accident, the Marlins canceled Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Braves in which Fernandez was scheduled to pitch.
While details of the accident haven’t been released in full yet, we do know that the four people were found on a 30-foot boat which was capsized off Miami Beach. Fernandez was expecting a child with his girlfriend, as seen on an Instagram post a week prior to his death. Fernandez was just 24 years old.
