Miami Marlins talented pitcher Jose Fernandez has sadly passed away this weekend after the boat he was on capsized after striking a Miami Bay jetty at very high speeds. He not only left fans heartbroken, and a promising career. He also left a beautiful story of survival, determination, and worst of all, pregnant girlfriend Maria Arias whom he contacted on Instagram before dying.
The Rookie of the Year had a heartwarming past. He came to the U.S. on a boat after leaving his home country, Cuba. They couldn't get to soil on the first 3 attempts, but after persevering and risking it all, they got to land on the forth try. This was one guy that just wouldn't quit.
