We're still reeling from the death of such a young, promising talent who had such fun on the baseball field.
ICYMI this morning, Miami Marlins star pitcher José Fernandez died overnight in a boating accident in Miami, and the team canceled their game today after reeling from the unimaginable tragedy.
A few hours ago, the Marlins held a press conference about Fernandez, and as you can see by watching the club's President of Baseball Operations, Mike Hill, speak (above), Jose clearly meant a LOT to that team.
Players, coaches, manager Don Mattingly, and the club's front office executives all gathered in the stadium to meet the media and discuss the tragedy that took place overnight.

The Canadian author wrote Shoeless Joe about a farmer in Iowa who decides to build a baseball field on his property to attract the legendary ghost of old-time baseball hero 'Shoeless' Joe Jackson.
Of course, that novel directly inspired the 1989 Kevin Costner-led Field of Dreams (pictured above) that also starred James Earl Jones.
Kinsella, according to his literary agent Carolyn Swayze, died in a
Tim Tebow is officially starting his career in professional baseball!
In case you didn't know, the former NFL quarterback decided to pull a Michael Jordan and try his luck at playing baseball recently — and apparently, the switchover is proving to be quite easy for the sports phenomenon.
That's because the New York Mets just signed the 29-year-old to a minor league contract to play for the team's Instructional League!
Last week, the athlete worked out for nearly 50 scouts from 28 MLB teams in El Lay, and will now head to the Mets Instructional League in Port St. Lucie, Florida, to start the next chapter in his Goldilocks-esque sports story.
The team made the official announcement on Twitter Thursday morning, saying:
