Jose Fernandez killed in boating accident

In stunning and tragic news, one of baseball’s preeminent young stars, Marlins right-hander Jose Fernandez, died in a boating accident early Sunday morning, the team has confirmed. Fernandez was 24.

“The Miami Marlins organization is devastated by the tragic loss of Jose Fernandez. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at a very difficult time,” the club said in a statement.

As a result of Fernandez’s death, the Marlins have canceled their game against the Braves on Sunday. Fernandez was among three men who were found dead after a Coast Guard Patrol spotted an overturned boat off Miami Beach at 3:30 a.m. ET. The 32-foot boat the group was on had a “severe impact” with a jetty, Lorenzo Veloz of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission told the Associated Press. There’s “no indication of alcohol or illegal drugs involved,” the Coast Guard said (via ESPN.com and Adam Kuperstein of NBC 6).

Twice the legal blood-alcohol level & he had cocaine in his system. We should be thankful that he didn't harm more people than he did.

For some reason people's logic goes out the door when it comes to watercraft. Driving a boat while intoxicated is still very dangerous. Too many people think that it's safer because they are on the water and not on the road.

Could you stop speculating and jumping to conclusions? He reportedly wasn't the one driving the boat. Have some respect for the man and his family before you start admonishing him while spinning speculative conclusions.

It's the internet, people love to talk trash sitting from their glass house and act like they've never made a mistake, it's normal.

My brother actually played a few AAU tournaments with Jose, you never ever heard anything bad about him, class act, RIP.

People driving/boating while intoxicated hits way too close to home for me to try to pretend to be objective.

At least you're honest about it, my cousin was killed by a drunk driver, and I get that people despise it and all, but most people that drink, have driven drunk in their lives, and so far the information out there is that Jose wasn't driving the boat anyway.
