The team and fans honored the 24-year-old, with every player wearing Fernández's No. 16 jersey, as a video of the athlete played throughout the stadium to a trumpet version of Take Me Out to the Ball Game.
After the Marlins' win, the team placed their hats on the pitcher's mound in honor as the crowd chanted Fernandez's name:
Anywho, at one point during the game, Miz Schumer ended up on the Mets' kiss cam and her reaction was absolutely perfect. Initially, the Trainwreck actress turned and planted a sweet kiss on her father's cheek. However, as the cam lingered on her, the Inside Amy Schumer creator pivoted her attention towards her man and sloppily made out with him.
A few hours ago, the Marlins held a press conference about Fernández, and as you can see by watching the club's President of Baseball Operations, Mike Hill, speak (above), José 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.
It wasn't just Hill breaking down with emotion, though — team President David Samson spoke, too, reading off a statement from him and owner Jeffrey Loria:
The pitcher and two other unidentified people were pronounced dead early Sunday after a Coast Guard patrol found a 33-foot boat overturned on a jetty about 3:30 a.m. local Miami time, according to Coast Guard Chief Nyxolyno Cangemi.
The accident is currently being investigated by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
The Marlins, who were set to play the Atlanta Braves today, have canceled their game in light of the tragedy surrounding Fernández (pictured above, left, laughing with an umpire during a game last week).
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
The 30-year-old hopes Colin's movement causes a societal shift across the nation, which will make everyone aware of the racism that still exists, and ultimately end it, adding:
"My take on it is, sh*t's gotta start somewhere. And if that was the starting point, I just hope people open up their eyes to see that there's really a problem going on, and something needs to be done for it to stop."
The ex-running back also called out everyone against the athlete's harmless display:
"And, I mean, if you're really not racist, then you won't see what he's doing as a threat to America, but just addressing a problem that we have."
