Few people have ever played the game of baseball so passionately, enthusiastically, and genuinely as the late, great Jose Fernandez.
I’ve never seen anyone else so immensely talented, yet down-to-earth and childlike as Jose. From the stories of his tumultuous migration from Cuba to his day-to-day attention paid to the fans, Jose cared about people in a beautifully unconventional way.
He will be missed by those who hit home runs for him and failed to do so against him, alike. It’s a sad day for America, and for the game of baseball.
Officially a U.S. citizen! Congratulations, José! pic.twitter.com/C4AwO43Ug1
