Marlins' Dee Gordon Hits Home Run as Team Honors Jose Fernandez in Incredibly Touching Moment - Watch Now
The Miami Marlins took the field on Monday evening (September 26) just a few days after their teammate Jose Fernandez was tragically found dead at age 24…and an amazing moment took place in his honor.
During the game, each of Jose‘s teammates wore his jersey. One of Jose‘s teammates, Dee Gordon, hit an amazing home run (his first of the entire season), and after running all of the bases, he broke down surrounded by the team.
“I don’t have kids, so that’s best moment of my life to hit a home run for him,” Dee said (via Fox Sports).
