Jose Fernandez Dead - Miami Marlins Pitcher in Boating Accident

So sad – professional baseball player Jose Fernandez has unexpectedly died.

The 24-year-old Miami Marlins pitcher was killed, along with two other unidentified men, during a boating accident on Sunday (September 25) in Miami Beach, Fla, according to CNN.

Their 32-foot boat crashed and bodies were found by the Coast Guard at about 3:15AM.

“The Miami Marlins organization is devastated by the tragic loss of José Fernández,” the Marlins organization said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this very difficult time.”

The team’s game against the Atlanta Braves has been canceled.

Jose was born in Cuba and was drafted by the Marlins in 2011. He was named Rookie of the Year in 2013 and was a two-time All-Star.
